Eamon Meagher R.I.P.

Eamon Meagher R.I.P

Longford GAA was deeply saddened this week as news of the death of former Longford Great Eamon Meagher.

Eamon was one of five brothers in the Meagher family, four of whom held the distinction of playing county football for Longford. Eamon represented the county during the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, being described by many as one of the finest half backs ever to grace a football pitch. What he lacked in physical stature he more than made up for in the heart and spirit with which he played Gaelic Football. Eamon played his club football for Drumlish Young Irelands.

Eamon was chosen at left half back on Longford’s “Team of the Millennium”.
