“Overall, Longford has the highest visits to the library per head of population and this is a great achievement,” Head of Finance, Longford Co Council, John McKeon added.


Cllr Seamus Butler (FF) said the result was “outstanding”, while Cllr Paraic Brady (FG) added; “this is a very positive report”.


Cllr Gerry Warnock (Ind), meanwhile, told those gathered that it was evident that Longford Co Council was “punching well above its weight”.
