Longford have executed a major scalp to reinforce their status as qualifier specialists.

After prevailing against Down in the previous round, it looked like an insurmountable task to overcome Monaghan in an away fixture this evening in Clones.

But Denis Connerton - who was also in charge on the last occasion that Longford defeated Monaghan in a qualifier encounter - has masterminded another famous win over the Farney men.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Longford have garnered an exceptional reputation for embracing the qualifiers in respect of previous big wins against apparently superior outfits including Derry and Mayo in previous seasons.

And tonight, Twitter reacted accordingly to another stunning victory.
