Player of the Year Last Saturday night at a packed Longford Arms Hotel the annual Longford GAA Awards Night took place. We were privileged to have two of our players nominated for the Intermediate Player of the Year. Shane Donohoe and Shane Kenny were nominated, and it was an honour for the club to have Shane Donohoe announced as Intermediate Player of the Year 2017. We would like to congratulate Shane on his well-deserved award.


The club had a very good year culminating with a wonderful victory in the Intermediate Championship. Off the field the club had a good year also. The club will hold its AGM on Saturday 17th February in the clubhouse at 6pm. To help continue the success of 2017 and create a growth in 2018 the club would like to encourage anyone that has an interest in the development of the club both on and off the field to come along to the AGM. The club is looking forward to seeing a great number at the meeting.

Good Luck The National Football League begins this weekend with Longford taking on Offaly in Tullamore on Sunday at 2pm. We wish Denis Connerton and Shane Donohoe the very best throughout the League and we wish our two other players Liam Connerton and Shane Kenny speedy recovery as they recover from their injuries.

Mark Fallon Congratulations to Mark Fallon and his Multyfarnham team mates on reaching the All-Ireland Final on Saturday week 3rdFebruary. The final will be played in Croke Park and we would encourage any of our club members be they at home or around the city to go along and support Mark and his Multyfarnham team mates on the evening.


On Monday night 15th January the 50/50 pool stood at €276 and the winning envelope drawn in the Yacht Bar was in the name of Johnny & Nuala Malone, Cloontuskert.

Tickets are on sale locally at €2 each. Alternatively, you can by the pink ticket for the year for just €100 and have 2 free weeks. The club would like to thank everyone that continues to support the draw on a weekly basis and also the many people that buy the one-year ticket.

Not too long ago the pool each week was nearing €500 and we would encourage you to get your weekly blue envelope and help drive the weekly amount back to where it should always be.

Your support is much appreciated.
