Congratulations: A special word of congratulations to Jimmy Hannify who was our representative on the 1966 Longford team that won the National League. Jimmy, along with all his surviving team mates, were honoured at a special function in Longford on Friday night last. He also went on to play a major role on the 1968 Leinster championship winning side in what was a golden era for Longford football. He also played a major part on the Fr. Manning Gaels team of the mid 70’s taking the club from junior up to senior status. Well done Jimmy on an award richly deserved.

Best Wishes: Congratulations and best of luck to Paddy McKenna, Currabawn who got drawn out to appear on next week’s Winning Streak. Paddy is a loyal club supporter and his hard work at Monaduff over the years has helped keep our grounds in great condition.
