Brian retired from active service from the Garda force on July 1 after twenty four years in Kenagh Garda Station. READ MORE BELOW PHOTO

The large crowd who attended was a good indication of Brian's popularity over a broad area of South Longford.

A big spread of refreshments were prepared and served up by a local committee who left no stone unturned to make it an enjoyable night for everyone especially for Brian and his extended family who were present.

A number of local people spoke in praise of Brian's dedicated service accompanied by background music.

No doubt a night to remember thanks to the local committee, those who prepared food and who subscribed to the presentation of a well deserved envelope.

Thanks to all and thanks to Brian, your shoes will be hard to fill.
