Hard luck to Paddy Collum and the Longford team and management on their defeat by Fermanagh at the weekend. We wish them the best of luck in the next round of the National League against Westmeath this weekend. 



The club extends its deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Nancy Cooney (née Davis, Main St. Drumlish), Hugh Boyle (Fardromin) and Molly Whitney (Clonmacart) who all passed away last week.
