Last May we went to Longford. St. Mel's had the fire just
after the Midnight Mass at Christmas. There was scaffolding all
over. We had gone up to Longford Town by Golden Trekker a free pass
for seniors on one of our few days in Ireland. You will not be at a
loss for information. They have a Public Library in the Town in
walking distance from the Train Station. It has an excellent
selection of books on local history. Being over seventy and a bit
worn out from traveling back from Naples the library was a God send.
The staff of the library was so helpful and from that short visit I
was helped a great deal on the search for great, great grandparents.
