14 of the most Longford things that have ever happened

Never change.

1. The time this letter was successfully delivered in the town

Simply addressed to:

Mr Sean Hussey (Singer)

With this helpful note attached:

Don’t know full address only that he sings like Neil Diamond just heard him on Shannonside today. Jan 9th.

Success, Longford style.

2. When this deal was on the go

Ah yes, free boulder to take in Longford town.

3. The time this “hamper” was on sale in a Longford filling station

5. That time a French town that named a street after Ballinamuck


6. The local business that won itself fame nationwide

11. When this number plate spoke the truth

12. When you couldn’t drive down the road without running into two lads transporting sheep

13. When the best name for a barbershop was invented

So Longford.
