Longford to face Navan in Town Plate semi-final

Longford to face Navan in Town Plate semi-final

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 second 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 on Easter Saturday at 2 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 with a cracking 17-08 win over Presentation De La Salle Bagenalstown 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.

Thanks to the support from all at Moyne CS with six coach loads of fans travelling to support the team.
