If you have previously registered on our website, you will need to re-register, but we have made it easier to do so by enabling you to use your Facebook or Google username and password.

There are excellent benefits to registering including:

• You can comment on stories throughout the website, having your say on what’s important to you

• You will receive details of fantastic exclusive offers and competitions only available to registered users.

On our new site you’ll find everything your news - local, regional and national - business, features, entertainment and sports - no better way to keep up with what’s going on in Longford.

All of our content is now much easier to find using the handy drop-down menus at the top of the screen. The menus drop down when you hover over the top tiles so select one - news, sport, community or lifestyle - and click.

We can now get more news to you with fewer clicks. Our homepage gives a handy overview of everything our new website has to offer so take the time to have a glance around the homepage and you might find stories from sections you hadn’t spotted before.
