Longford Senior Management: Congratulations to club and county legend Padraic Davis on being put forward for ratification as Longford senior football manager. Padraic is the first man from the club to hold this position and we are in no doubt that he will be just as successful in inter-county management as he was as a player. Everyone at the club is proud of this achievement and wishes Padraic the very best of luck.
