Longford could soon have its own dedicated specialist in place aimed at bringing some of the county town's most dilapidated buildings back into use.

County Council officials are to write to government figureheads with a view to employing a dedicated dereliction officer as part of its ongoing regeneration drive.

Fianna Fáil Cllr Uruemu Adejinmi raised the prospect of establishing the position within the confines of Longford County Council at a recent local authority meeting.
