Senior Rugby Round Up

Longford found out over the weekend that their opponent in the Provincial Towns Plate Semi-Final will be Navan J1s.  Navan’s Senior Team play in the AIL, where they were relegated from Division 1B this season.  Their 2nd XV is a strong side but one Longford will respect and look to impose their own game on.  The last meeting between the two sides was in the Provincial Towns Cup four years ago, with Longford coming out on top. The match will take place over the Easter weekend with the date and venue to be confirmed.  It will most likely be on Easter Saturday at 3 PM.  Stay tuned to our Social Media Channels for updates.  Best of luck lads!

Moyne with the Leinster Development Shield

Well done to Moyne Community School who lifted the Leinster Senior Development Shield on Tuesday with a cracking 17-08 win over Presentation De La Salle Bagnelstown in the final.  The team had to dig deep, as this was a replay, after the first edition of the final was deadlocked, 19-19 at full time.  The team was coached by our own 1st XV player Danny McHugh and had a number of representatives who also play their trade with Longford RFC; Shane O’Hara, Ryan Darcy, Martin Bissett, Eoin Murtagh, Jack Patton and Sean Conboy (picture below with coach Danny McHugh).  Thanks to the support from all at Moyne CS, where six coach loads of supporters travelled to support the team.

U14 Girls through to the League Final

Well done to our U14 Girls team, who won through to the Leinster Final on Saturday after defeating New Ross, 34 30.  Well done girls and best of luck in the final.
