Longford Town

Longford Town, founded in 1924, were elected to the League of Ireland in 1984 and have returned to the Premier Division after winning the promotion playoffs last season.

The club’s most successful period was between 2001 and 2005 reaching three FAI Cup finals, winning the blue riband trophy twice as well as a League Cup title in that period and qualifying for European football in 01/02, 04/05 & 05/06. Current manager Daire Doyle will be hoping recent additions Aaron Bolger & Paddy Kirk will add to their existing squad and keep The Town in the Premier Division.
