Sleep out for Simon

The annual Longford Sleep Out in aid of the Midlands Simon community will take place again this year on Good Friday in Connolly Barracks.

Sponsored once again by the Kiernan family and Kiernan Structural Steel Ltd, the annual event has raised close to €70,000 to date, supporting homeless services in the region. These funds have played a critical part in the opening of a dedicated accommodation centre in Longford on Earl St.

If you are interested in taking part in this year's sleep out, sponsorship cards can be obtained by contacting Noel Greene on 087 961 5766.
