Safely reuniting communities in Longford through bingo

Bingo had resumed in places

The popular Graiguecullen bingo on the Laois Carlow border will not resume due to the fourth wave of Covid-19.

"In light of the very high number of Covid cases in our area and around the country at present and the request from the Department of Health for people to restrict their contacts, it has been decided to postpone reopening our parish bingo for another few weeks.
