All  crafters will be heading to the Temperance Hall, Longford on Saturday, 5th July for Longford ICA Craft Fair and Floral Display starting at 10a.m. Following on from the success of last years, we aim to have lots of crafters again this year with Jewellery making and basket weaving added to the list.  There is a very full schedule planned for the day with lots of demonstrations,  a cafe and to add to the excitement Irish TV are coming to film at it. Everyone is welcome to come along and sit in on some of the demos which will be free or sit and relax with a cup of tea among the floral displays in the Civic Suite. Times of the demos will be available next week. Admission is free.  

Congratulations to Teresa Dooner Town Guild who came first with her brown Bread in the competition sponsored by Aldi. We wish Teresa good luck as she goes on to the National Semi finals at An Grianan in August. Hopefully, she will proceed to the final in September at the National Ploughing. Thanks to Angela, Derek and Kenagh Guild for a very enjoyable night last Monday where we learned many new tips on gardening. The bring & buy was a great success and nearly everyone had some little thing for their Garden going home with them. Entries are still being taken for the garden competition and more are welcome. To enter please ring Angela on 086 168 7372. A bus will run to the Garden Party in an Grianan on  Friday,18th July. Should you wish to go, please contact Teresa 086 408 3393.
