Longford County Council is pleased to announce the launch of ‘Perfectly Located Longford’, a new investment brochure aimed at attracting businesses to County Longford. The brochure was launched by Longford County Council Cathaoirleach Cllr Colm Murray, joined by the elected members.

Available to read at, ‘Perfectly Located Longford’ offers a roadmap to help businesses see how to successfully set up or expand into County Longford. Included within the brochure are inspiring local business success stories, information on business supports. It also profiles County Longford and some of the advantages businesses benefit from, including its central location, excellent road and rail network, lower cost of doing business and access to an
educated and skilled workforce.
Local launches also took place across the county with the Municipal District (MD) Cathaoirligh joined by local businesses: C&D Food with Ballymahon MD Cathaoirleach Cllr Paul Ross, Avery Dennison with Longford MD Cathaoirleach Cllr Martin Monaghan, Kiernan Milling with Granard MD Cathaoirleach Cllr Turlough  McGovern. All the above businesses are also profiled in ‘Perfectly Located Longford’.

‘Perfectly Located Longford’ is part of a wider strategy to promote County Longford to investors both nationally and internationally. This work is already well underway, with County Longford representatives promoting the county at St Patrick’s Day celebrations in New York.
Speaking following the launch, Longford County Council Cathaoirleach Cllr Colm Murray said, “Perfectly Located Longford profiles the many advantages there are for entrepreneurs and companies which come to Longford to do business. It also profiles the many inspiring business success stories we have as a small county punching well above its weight in terms of our thriving local business community. I hope this new brochure can inspire and show the way forward for future investment into County Longford.”
