For more than half a century the old Quinnsworth store on Longford’s Main Street was a Christmas institution for many local families.

The launch will be performed by well-known local historian, Seán Ó Suilleabháin.

The journal is a ‘must’ for those interested in local history. Its editor, James MacNerney, has done an outstanding job of gathering a striking variety of articles from established contributors and new ones.

The journal will be available for sale in all the usual outlets in the coming week. Copies are €12, with two at a special price of €20 at the launch.

Those attending are asked to bring their vaccination certificates and wear their masks.
