Patsy Reilly Final: The Patsy Reilly Division 2 league final will take place next weekend. At the time of writing there is no venue or time for the match. Keep an eye on club accounts on Facebook or Twitter or see the fixtures on the Longford Leader. Good luck to the lads and we look forward to another title coming our way at the weekend.

U21: The U21 team had a very hard earned first round victory over Cashel/Killashee in Dunbeggan on Saturday. It is always a great thing to get a victory in the first round. Let us hope that the confidence gained from this victory will see the lads going a long way in this final U21 competition.

50/50: Monday night last 23rd October the 50/50 pool stood at €397 and the winner drawn in the Clarkes Bar was Monica Healy, Newtowncashel. This was a second win in the draw for Monica. Your support is greatly appreciated for the weekly draw. 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

Baking Skills: The club is holding a festive fund-raising Bake Sake and Cake Demonstration event on Sunday 10th December in the parish hall.

We know there are many fabulous bakers within the parish and outside and the club is looking for your support. Create your ideas, prepare for baking and remember the date 10th December. You can bake anything you want be it buns cupcakes, rock buns, brownies, scones, brioche, doughnuts, biscuits, chip cookies, cakes, puddings, loaves, cheesecakes, muffins and breads or anything else you wish to bake.

This promises to be a fun filled afternoon for everyone and it is an event to be baked for and not to be missed. Further details will be published next week

You should consider refereeing?

Have you ever thought of taking up refereeing? Refereeing is open to men and women from the age of 18 upwards. It is something that brings great satisfaction and allows referees to progress up the ranks to whatever level their dedication takes them.

The image of referring being a solitary occupation does not bear anything close to reality. You are a member of a team of referees in the county where there is great comradery. You also will have your own umpires that leaves you part of another team and a leader of that team.

Now, there are wonderful opportunities for young referees to climb the ranks within Longford and indeed in the Leinster ranks also. Now is the time to be giving it serious consideration.

Longford has a proud record of supplying referees to Leinster and the National Refereeing panel for many years and this opportunity is waiting for you with the right application.

Refereeing is fun and it builds great friendship. If you decide to explore the idea feel free to contact Joe O’Brien joea@iol.ie or phone 086 2460 840.
