Longford enjoyed great success at the Leinster Community Games ‘Team’ Finals in Carlow last Saturday, winning one gold and three silver medals.
Kenagh won gold with their U-13 boys indoor soccer team - they defeated St Bridget's, Newbridge 5-4 in the final and now go forward to the National Finals in August.
Ballymahon/forgney U-13 girls rounders won silver medals. The girls put in a good performance but the young team were beaten by a much more experienced Wexford team.
The Clonbroney U-14 and U-16 skittles team also captured silver medals.
Longford Community Games Secretary Shirley Maloney said, “Well done to all our teams and managers who reached the Leinster semi-finals, some narrowly missing out in a place at the finals. Thanks also to all the managers, parents and supporters who travelled with them to Carlow.”
