TIDY TOWNS are having a Scrap Saturday on April 30 from 10am to 1pm in Harrison’s Yard. We are looking for scrap metal, in particular old ranges (cookers), gates, farm machinery etc (no fridges). It’s a good way of recycling and making a few euros for Tidy Towns Effort. We will pick up items on request. Contact 087-6270358.
would like to thank all those who have given so generously to our recent church gate collection. Your support is greatly appreciated. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who gave so generously of their time to collect for us on the Saturday and Sunday.
HARVEST FESTIVAL MEETING
There will be a very important meeting of Longford Harvest Festival Committee on Friday May 6 in the El Paso, Kenagh at 9.30pm. As this is the first meeting for 2011 it is very important that all members should attend. New members are very welcome. The oats crop which was planted in Rathcline over the past month is doing very well and hopefully will be ready for the next festival in early September. All those wishing to take part in the festival or to have displays or exhibitions are asked to contact committee members as soon as possible.

Good progress is being made with the present development work at Kenagh GAA pitch. the first phase is now almost complete. Trees have been removed to make room for the new track around the outer pitch. When finished the track can be used by local people for walking or jogging all year round as the facility will be lit for the benefit of users. It can also be used for serious training by all those wishing to keep fit. The track will be available for use by all members of the community. thanks to the local club for this very welcome development.
