Community Games

Community Games National Finals: Well done to the 5 young athletes from our parish who represented Longford at the National Community Games Finals in Athlone last weekend. All the children are commended on the practice they put in over the summer to prepare for the event and for their outstanding sportsmanship over the entire weekend. We don’t need a medal to know that you are a real star! AMG Community Games is very proud of Sarah McPhillips U10 Girls 200M, Gareth Mulleady U14 Boys Long Jump, Cian McPhillipsU12 Boys 600M, Cathal Farrell U10 Boys 100M & Jack Belton U8 Boys 80 M. Pride of place goes to Jack Belton, Glenn, who won a beautiful silver medal in the 80M final which is a really outstanding achievement. The athletes had great support from family and friends which helped them excel through the heats and semi finals.


On the death of Anne (Nancy) Orohoe, (formerly from Barroe, Moydow) in Buncrana, Co Donegal, sympathy is extended her family and relatives. May she rest in peace.
