Longford Abroad - our international network
Thousands of people throughout the globe proudly claim a strong connection to County Longford. You may be one of them and if so, it may interest you to know that there are a number of Longford Associations actively meeting in various locations.
The objective of the group is to provide an Association for Longford people in London and to promote Social, Cultural and Welfare activities amongst members. For more information visit http://www.thelongfordassociationinlondon.com/
In New York, we have The County Longford Association of Greater New York, which was established in 1891 to assist Longford people in need. Today the association assists newly arrived immigrants and offers scholarships to the children and grandchildren of its members. You can check out their website here (http://www.countylongfordny.com/). In London, Longford men and women have been gathering together since 1955 to provide social, cultural and welfare activities to the members of The Longford Association in London (http://www.thelongfordassociationinlondon.com/).
Meanwhile in Manchester, The Longford Association has formed a community aimed at keeping members in touch with social, cultural and welfare activities. You can follow them on Facebook! (Longford Association in Manchester on Facebook)
Closer to home, we have the Longford Association Dublin which is celebrating 63 years in 2017. You can follow their regular activities at their website Longford Association Dublin (www.longfordassociationdublin.ie).
