Ladies Football Club - Longford Slashers GAA

FOUNDATION

Longford Slashers Ladies Club was founded in the early eighties and won Senior championship & league titles in 1981 & 1982.  After a number of years in existence it subsequently went into hibernation but was reformed in 2008 and is happy to be associated with the Longford Slashers GAA club which has being in existence since 1954.

Since our reformation we have enjoyed championship successes at U12, U14, U16 & Minor level. Our U14 team represented Longford in the Feile na nÓg finals in Derry in 2013 and Connaught in 2014.

Since 2012, our minor teams have won the A championship 5 years in a row and our teams have won U16 & U14 championships over these years.

Our Junior team won the Junior A championship in 2017 after reaching the championship final in 4 out of the previous 5 years. This followed winning the Division 3 League in 2013 and the Division 2 title in 2016. They will be playing their football in the top Division 1 in 2018. 

We have representation at all levels of county football with two players on the Longford All Ireland Junior winning squad in 2016.  With the continued dedication of our committee, mentors and parents we hope to continue to improve and grow.
