The National Lottery is honoured to sponsor this year’s Local Ireland Media Awards for the third consecutive year which celebrates excellence in local journalism.

Local newspapers, such as the Longford Leader, are the lifeblood of communities and hold a very important place in Irish society, providing a vital service that should be cherished and supported.

While it has never been easier for people to access news they still turn to their local newspaper for reliable, trusted information.
