Next weekend sees a number of activities taking place as part of a celebration of the life of Cian Smith.  There will be two "Come Dine with Me" nights over the weekend.  On Friday March 1st the Breffni Arm Hotel Arva will host the "Come Dine with Me" experience and on Saturday March 2nd it will take place in the Piker’s Lodge Gowna.  On Sunday March 3rd the celebrations will continue when a fun game with the players who played on the various teams with Cian at 2pm in Pairc na Gael, Dromard.  We encourage as many people to attend the game as possible as it will prove to be a game with a difference with a few amusing twists along the way.  Refreshments will be available afterwards in the clubhouse.  The All Ireland Senior football Cup, The Sam Maguire and the All Ireland Senior Hurling Cup, The Liam McCarthy will be present on the day.  Children and families are welcome to take the opportunity to hold and be photographed with both cups.  A number of very sought after items will be auctioned off over the course of the weekend activities namely signed jerseys of the All Ireland winning Donegal and Kilkenny winning teams, the H Cup winning Leinster rugby team, a Celtic legends selection.  Signed footballs from the Longford senior panel and signed sliotars from the Kilkenny team as well a pair of goalkeeper gloves belonging our own Damien Sheridan will go under the hammer to mention but a few. We had a useful challenge game between a senior selection and our u21s on Sunday last.  Senior team lineout was as follows; Gary Kilkenny, Thomas Conefrey, James Conefrey, Cillian Hourican, Kieran Mc Stay, Jimmy Kiernan, Brian Kiernan, James Mimnagh, John Sheridan, Kevin Maguire, Emmet Masterson, Peadar Kiernan Micheal Reilly,  Dermot Reilly, Oisín Hourican .  U21 team was Eóin McNerney, Stephen Kenny, Keith Masterson, James Kenny, Ronan Smith, Niall McManus, Ross McNerney, Michael Reynolds, Sean McNerney, Gary Maguire, Liam Doherty, Conal Murphy, Declan Mimnagh. Hard luck to Peter Masterson who along with his Athlone IT teammates were defeated by UCC in the Sigerson Cup semi final on Friday last in Athlone.  Reserve league 1 and 3 competitions are commencing on Saturday March 9th when we have home games with Mostrim and Grattans respectively.  Best wishes to Longford seniors who make the trip to the Athletic grounds in Armagh to take on the home side on this Saturday night.
