Taoiseach expected on flying visit to Longford today

The Taoiseach is expected to make a flying visit to Longford this afternoon.

Party sources have indicated to Shannonside FM that Leo Varadkar is due into the county town at around 12.30 today to examine a number of areas including the Market Square and Grafton Court.

Last week the government announced almost €1million in funding for Longford town, for urban regeneration in the town at a number of sites, including St Mel’s Road.


The visit is just one part of what will be a very busy day for the Fine Gael leader as he will also be in Mullingar later in the afternoon, before making an appearance on the Late Late show tonight.
