Mullinalaghta is all within Longford - the Cavan half has its own club (Gowna).

Bornacoola would have a small tail-end in Longford between the Finn River bridge and the Tomisky roundabout but I don't think it pulls from Roscommon?

That's still just one province though, so not the answer the first person here was looking for....

Na Piarsaigh in Limerick. North of the Shannon in the city it straddles the Clare border and the parish of Meelick,Co Clare where the Casey brothers live. Also has a catchment area not really defined and a population of about 30,000 to pick from which would have about 3 or 4 rugby clubs and numerous soccer clubs.
