A special presentation was  made on Friday night by the Crowe Family to the club. The medals won by the late, great Pat Crowe are now on display in the clubrooms. Pat was one of the stars of the teams of the 50s and 60s and worked tirelessly for the club throughout his life so it is a great honour to have his medals in Monaduff. Thank you to the Crowe family for this lovely gesture.


Well done and best of luck to Club President Mary Gilhooley on her well-deserved nomination for Longford Person of the Year
