Long, 35, started his career with Stoke City before joining Dundalk in 1993. He joined St Pat's in 1996 and soon established himself as a regular in the Saints side that won the Premier Division in 1997/98 and 1998/99.
He signed for Bray Wanderers in July 2000 after returning from a year in Australia.
Long made 138 appearances for the Seagulls before retiring in 2005.
