Have your say! Who is Longford's 'All Time Great'? Deadline for nominations extended until Friday, January 11.
The Longford Leader has launched a search for the All Time Greatest Longford person ever.
Their finest hour could have been on the sports field, or in business, or through community endeavour, entertainment or something else entirely.
We are compiling a shortlist of your nominations and in the coming weeks we will give people a chance to vote for who they think should win the accolade of Longford's All Time Great. We want suggestions from right across the community and the generations, either historical or modern day.
To nominate a person, simply use the message box below to include their name and some brief details on their life and the reason why they are being nominated. Closing date for nominations is this Friday, January 11 at 6pm.
You can also nominate via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once we have compiled a shortlist of 16 worthy candidates, we will run off a series of polls on www.longfordleader.ie and from the initial list of 16 candidates, we will reduce that down to eight quarter finalists, four semi finalists and finally the grand final – to find out who you believe should be crowned Longford's All Time Great.
