Our annual 5km Walk/Run/Jog which was previously set for early December will now take place this Sunday 24th November at 1pm. The run is hosted by Dromard GAA club and proceeds this year are in aid of the Latin School Community Centre renovation fund. Registration will take place from 11.45am and there will be a pre race warm up with Abi Hagan at 12.40pm. This is a chipped race and the entry fees are as follows; Chipped runners €15, Walkers and joggers €10 and family entry is €20. There will be category prizes and also prizes for first locals home. Congratulations to our neighbours Fr. Manning Gaels on winning the under 21A Championship when they defeated Killoe at the weekend. Hard luck to Longford Slashers who were beaten after a gallant display against Portlaoise in Pearse Park on Sunday last.  Congratulations to Gilessa and Padraig Farrell Clonelly on the birth of their baby daughter during their past week.  Best wishes to club supporter Gerry Sheridan Corrinagh who is currently hospitalised and we hope he makes a full and speedy recovery.  Congratulations to Sean Conefrey who was nominated by the Parent’s Association of St. Patrick’s NS for a Longford Sports Partnership Award at a function in the Backstage Theatre on Saturday night last. Sean is hugely deserving of such recognition in light of the tremendous amount of time and effort that he puts into training young players in all age groups in the club. Sean always plays down his involvement and is reluctant to be put in the limelight for attention such as this. However we cannot let the occasion pass without saying well done and thank you for your immeasurable contribution to our club. Lotto results for Monday 11th November.
