The sad news is that the holiday period is now over and children are back at School. We wish well to the children who have moved on from Lismacaffrey School to start another section of their education. We trust their years in St, Fintan’s School, Lismacaffrey will stand to them.

Wildlife Club

The 2014 County Longford DTL Clay Shoot was held in the club grounds on 17th August last, with 23 teams taking part. The Streete club had two teams taking part, with our A team taking first place in the senior section which was the first time that the club has won this event, so we say well done to Tommy Denning, Pat Denning Brendan Mulligan, Joe Kelly, and Patrick Owens who were the winning team. and also to our B team of Michael Campbell, Willie Campbell, Padraig McGauran, Michael Mulleady, and Hugh O’Hara. Two of our club members also won two of the individual prizes on the day with Patrick Owens winning the High Gun prize, and Tommy Denning winning the 15DTL competition, so again we say well done to all involved in winning three cups for the club which is a great achievement for our club which is one of the smallest club’s in the region.
