Wolfe Tones turned a two-point half-time deficit into a 10-point winning margin to claim their seventh Longford title in eight years on a wet and miserable afternoon at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park.

This was the second final loss in a row for Slashers, who ended the game with 13 players after Sean Stakelum and sub Shane Maguire were sent off.

A pointed free from Eoin Donnellan sent Slashers into the break with a two-point lead, but Wolfe Tones were a different proposition after the restart, and three points from John Mulhern edged them back in front in the 35th minute.
