The 2016 Longford Senior Football Championship is the 100th running of the Longford GAA's premier club Gaelic football tournament for senior graded teams in County Longford, Ireland since the first County Championship was held in 1890 (99 completed since 1890, 1 started but not completed in 1891). The 2016 tournament consisted of 12 teams, with the winner going on to represent Longford in the Leinster Senior Club Football Championship. The championship starts with a group stage and then progresses to a knock out stage.
Killoe Young Emmets were the defending champions after they defeated Abbeylara in the previous years final.
This was Rathcline's return to the senior grade after 4 years since relegation in 2011 after claiming the 2015 Longford Intermediate Football Championship title, however they were relegated at the end of the season. Carrickedmond lost the 2015 relegation final, but with the new format for this year's competition they were permitted to stay in the senior grade.
In the final, played on October 16, Mullinalaghta St. Columba's defeated Abbeylara by 1-8 to 0-8 to claim their third ever Longford Senior Football title and their first since 1950.

  • (Note*) On 7 August 2016, Killoe Young Emmets beat Longford Slashers 1-9 to 2-5 however the Longford CCCC ordered a replay to be called after Killoe were found to have 16 players on the pitch when they scored what they thought was the winning point late on in the game. The game had been re-fixed for 16 August 2016, but Slashers appeal over the suspensions of two of their players to the Leinster GAA Hearings Committee and their decision has led to the Longford CCCC agreeing to defer the replay until 21 August 2016.
