Pearse Park is a GAA stadium in Longford, Ireland. It is the main grounds of Longford's Gaelic football and hurling teams. The ground originally had a capacity of 18,000, however in November 2011, this was cut to 8,000 for health and safety reasons. As of 2012, the name of the stadium has been updated; with capacity of "10,000", it is now referred to as Glennon Brothers Pearse Park, due to sponsorship with Glennon Brothers.

On 4 June 2006, Dublin defeated Longford by two points at Pearse Park, the last time Dublin have played a Championship match away from Croke Park.
