Submissions sought for third edition of the Longford Leader annual

The Longford Leader newsroom are currently working on the third edition of the Longford Annual.

This will be available in mid November through local newsagents and will reflect on some of the highlights of the year that was whilst also looking ahead to the year 2020.

It will be packed full of some of the best features of local press and will also feature a nostalgic look back through the years as we re-produce actual archive pages from bygone years.

We also plan to reproduce some of the best photos from 2019 as well as some of the most popular archive photos as published in our weekly Down Memory Lane feature.

The publication will very much be a collaborative effort and to that end we are appealing to readers for some help and assistance. If you are a local poet, writer or photographer then we would love to feature your work. Also we are looking to reproduce wedding photos of local couples who were happily married over the course of the year.

The Longford Annual will be available in local shops from mid November and it promises to be a treasure trove of memories and highlights from the year that was as well as a topical and seasonal look back at bygone years.

Were you married in 2019?

In mid November the Longford Leader will produce the Longford Annual publication. This will be a stand alone publication that reflects on the year that was and also looks ahead to 2020.

We want to chart the highs and lows of 2019 and for many couples the best part of 2019 would have been their wedding. Over the course of the year we have featured many local weddings in the Leader and are keen to features others also in the Annual. So if you were married during the year and would like to have your happy photo featured in the Longford Leader Annual, then please feel free to email your wedding photo and an accompanying caption to

Ideally we would prefer if the subject matter was Longford themed but that is not essential. However, it is necessary that the writers and poets are either from the county or living locally. If you would have to have your work featured in the Longford Leader Annual then email samples of suitable work to

Shout out for local photos!

Co Longford is alive at the moment with top quality photographers who are showcasing their work online and in particular through Facebook.

As part of our Longford Leader Annual publication we want to give a print platform to as many of these photographers as possible.

Ideally we want to feature your work if it has a Longford dimension and of course it is important that you either live locally or are originally from Co Longford.
