He takes over from Padraig Davis who stepped down in the summer.

Arles-Killeen clubman Billy O'Loughlin says he wants to bring a fresh dynamic to the Longford footballers. 

He was confirmed as their new manager last night, nearly six months after Padraig Davis stepped down. 

O’Loughlin previously led the Laois under-20s to a Leinster final. He also had playing stints with his home team Arles-Killeen and St.Lomans in Mullingar during his latter years. 

He's a son of Declan O'Loughlin, a selector under Mick O'Dwyer in Laois famous run to a Leinster title in 2003. 

His backroom team will be made up of Paul Brady, Mickey Hannon, Aidan Kilcoyne and a further two internal selectors. 

The vacancy in Longford was the final inter-county slot to be filled for the 2022 seasons.
