Club Longford, the county’s official GAA supporters’ club, have organised a fundraising Golf Classic at Longford Golf Club on Friday & Saturday, August 27 & 28.
The event’s principal sponsor is Michael Brewster and family, a Longford-born investment banker who heads the Brewster Financial Strategies Group of Wells Fargo Advisors in New York.
Connolly Cup holders Killoe are through to the final of the Covid delayed 2020 Peter Hanley Motors Senior Football Championship after cruising to a very easy win over Mostrim at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park on Saturday evening with the razor sharp Mark Hughes firing over the impressive total of 11 points.
Club Longford Chairperson Mark Connellan thanked Mr Brewster for his support, Pat McCarrick (McCarricks Cash & Carry, refreshments sponsor), Joe O'Reilly (Castlethorn Group, green fees sponsor) and Longford Golf Club for staging the event.
He added, “We have also got great support from the Longford Race Day committee in Dublin coordinated by Dromard’s Frank Kiernan of Knightstone.”
Prizes on the day are being sponsored by Vincent King (Forgney), Michael Mulleady and the Mulleady Group, Drumlish and Frank Kiernan, Knightstone Construction.
In a dramatic finish to the highly entertaining 2020 Mulleady Group Intermediate Football Championship final at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park on Sunday, Darren Carberry struck to score a couple of goals in stoppage time to clinch the capture of the Gerry Hennessy Cup for Killashee for the first time since 2016.
