The Gaelic Field 

Longford county board recently launched The Gaelic Field, an excellent book giving a history of the playing pitches of each of the clubs in the county. There are a limited number of books on sale through the club. If you are interested in reserving a copy, please contact PRO Pauric Gill. Books cost €15. Well done and thank you to Eamonn Brennan and Seamus McRory on an excellent publication which is of great interest to all Longford Gaels and shows the value in contacting clubs to publish their history with information which otherwise may be lost.

The club extends its deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Bernie Kane who passed away last week. Bernie was a terrific Gaels supporter and a very proud Drumlish man his whole life. He sponsored gear for the club in the 90s and was rarely without the maroon and gold flag wrapped around him at matches. Solas na bhFlaitheas air
