The club was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of club great Mickey Bissett in Dublin at the weekend. Mickey was a dashing forward for St. Mel’s, Longford and the club in the 1950s and 1960s. The club also extends its sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Kathleen Sweeney (née Farrell), Brocklagh who passed away recently. Solas na bhFlaitheas orthu.
