Community Games

Last weekend, we had eight children representing Killashee at the county Art Final which was held in St Emer’s National School, Longford. They were Eva Cosgrove and Eoin Farrell U-8, Amy Jordan and Briain Farrell U-10, Aine Kiely and Cian Clancy U-12, Cait Kiely and Matthew Jordan U-14. Well done to all the children who took part. Congratulations to Cian Clancy who won a gold medal U-12 and to Matthew Jordan who won a bronze medal U-14. Cian now goes on to represent Longford at the National Finals which will take place in August and we wish him every success. The county athletic finals take place in Ballymahon on Saturday, 21st and Sunday, 22nd August. Each area is requested to supply helpers to mark the pitch in Ballymahon at 10am on Saturday morning 21st June. If you can lend a helping hand please contact Barry on 087 7963182.


Deepest sympathy is extended to the relatives and friends of Thomas Carrig whose funeral took place during the week. May his soul rest in peace.

Welcome home

Welcome home to Alice Magan who has returned from Australia recently.


Congratulations to Longford hurlers who won the Lory Meagher Cup final in Croke Park on Saturday last. They defeated Fermanagh by 3-18 to 3-16 after a very exciting match. It was great to see such support from Killashee and Clondra and they were not disappointed as they witnessed our St Brigid’s man, Johnny Casey score a super point. Well done to all concerned and continued success to all involved with Longford hurling.


On Saturday morning, 14th June at 10am, volunteers are requested to come out and help with grass cutting and tidy up at the graveyard in Killashee. Please bring your strimmer/lawnmower, wheelbarrow and any other tools that would be useful for the clean up.
