Longford Leader gallery: Finn Skelly wins car in St Brigid's GAA Development draw

After a long 9 months St Brigid's GAA Development draw took place at their grounds in Killashee on Saturday last, 31st July.


It was great to see so many people from the parish in attendance and it was a great chance to catch up with friends we hadn't seen for many months. This is the culmination of tremendous efforts put in by many people over the last nine months.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who purchased tickets in our development draw, to all who purchased tickets, to all our ticket sellers and all who handled our administrative duties.
