Clonguish GAA is a Gaelic football and hurling club in Newtownforbes, Co. Longford, Republic of Ireland. The club was formed on the 20th October 1889. Situated in the West of Co. Longford it is bordered by four parishes in Co. Longford, Kilashee, Templemichael (Longford), Killoe and Drumlish - the parish also shares a common boundary with the Province of Connaught in that it adjoins the parishes of Bornacoola and Gortletteragh in Co. Leitrim and Tarmonbarry in Co. Roscommon. The Irish for Clonguish is Cluain Geis which means 'The Meadow of the Swans'. Clonguish are probably the best recognised clubs in Longford. They hold the record of winning 4 Senior Championships in a row in 1962, 63, 64 and 65. They have reached the Leinster Club Championship semi-finals on 3 occasions losing narrowly in all 3 games. They are the only Longford club to get this far in the provincial championship more than once with Fr. Manning Gaels and Cashel both getting there on one occasion.
