With the government announcing the further easing of Covid-19 restrictions last Thursday evening, people will be craving open air activities to enjoy and explore over the summer months.

Longford Tourism recently launched their ‘Longford in Summer’ promotional short movie, the last in the four season series produced by Harp Media in Granard, which brings some of the county’s attractions to life.

‘Longford in Summer’ highlights the beautiful Richmond Harbour in Clondra. This is the terminus of the Royal Canal and where it meets the River Shannon.

There is a lot happening in Clondra with the Royal Canal Greenway, the National Famine way, Midlands Cycle Hub which is a new cycling business recently opened.

If you wish to cycle along the beautiful Royal Canal Greenway, why not give Robert from Midlands Cycle Hub a call and he will sort you out with a bike.

There is also a 10k blueway loop in Clondra. Get out, get active on your bike or your kayak!
