With Center Parcs only 12 months away from opening its gates in Newcastle Woods, things are getting serious in Ballymahon.

And, to celebrate the announcement of over 100 indoor and outdoor activities, Center Parcs have just released this cute video of Ballymahon children testing out one of those very activities.

In this week's Longford Leader, we've done a two-page feature on Ballymahon and what the town and local community are doing to prepare for the arrival of the multi-million euro holiday resort.
