Longford showed with victory over Westmeath in the group stages last year that they can be a match for anyone on their day
The Midlanders showed real consistency in Group C, seeing off Kildare and Roscommon to top the pool.
Their reward is a meeting with Clare, who finished second behind Louth in Group B. The winners of this one will face Laois or Wicklow in the semi-finals.
