Former British Prime Minister Sir John Major is to visit Longford.
Sir John Major has accepted the invitation to attend the inaugural Albert Reynolds memorial lecture in Longford next month. The event will take place in the Backstage theatre on Monday the 10th of December. Fianna Fail leader Michael Martin will also speak at the event.
The week will mark the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Downing Street declaration. The proposal was first mooted by Fianna Fail councillor Mick Cahill when he was Chair of Longford County Council.
