Congratulations to Longford Leader journalists Aisling Kiernan and Liam Cosgrove who have been shortlisted in the 'News Series of the Year' category for the 2nd annual Local Ireland Media Awards.

The awards take place in the Killeshin Hotel, Portlaoise on Thursday, May 18 at a gala. MC is Michael Lyster, RTE Sports broadcaster.
We wish Aisling and Liam every success.
