Walk about town, Longford Town never know who you would walk into, nice to be friendly, and bit of snooker in Athlone where I bumped into locals having a mini competition, didn't stay long enough to find out who won it. Some well known Longfordordians who meet up on a Friday for a bit of a chin wag,more often than not in Jacobites, you better have your wits about you with this motley crew
As storm 'Ellen' as its been called, swept through Ireland and Longford early morning on the 20th August 2020, it took with it a small piece of Teffia Park with it. A tree that was planted in 1954, succumbed to the force of the storm Ellen, but it did look as storm Ellen just helped the inevitable, because of the rot that had set in some time before as is noticeable. No damage was reported to any local residence or anyone thank God. It will be loss, more than aesthetics, many have passed through, took refuge, and many many have played conkers on the back of it, it is the memory of many. I bumped into Pat Briody and his grandson Tommy and Ned Stokes, help cleaning up the aftermath. Ned told me, local man to Teffia, Leo Devlin said the tree was planted in 1954, and believe it or not, Ned was open to tell me his age, the same age as the tree was planted. Local Councilor Peggy Nolan said on social media, allaying any fears of what may happen, and that as soon as possible that a new tree would be planted.
