I found your site after reading an article in a local paper about the woman of the year.

Just came upon your website. We recently found that part of our family (Colson/Colston) came to Brooklyn, NY, from the Longford/Westmeath border area in 1851. So nice to see your site. Many blessings to you all--

This is fantastic. Going to consider applying for membership. My Great Grandfather was from Longford. Edgeworthstown. Have been there as well. Many relatives. This is great.

I came upon your website and noted how you state that "No adequate history of the association is available because all of the early records have been lost. Thus many notable events and names are unknown." I may be able to help, at least in some small way. My grandfather was Patrick H. Quinn, which your website notes was the President of your organization from 1911 to 1914. I have found the program from the "Initial Banquet" of the "County Longford Men's Association". It was held to commemorate the 25th anniversary of your organization. It was held at the Yorkville Casino on Sunday, February 11, 1912. The program lists all the dances played, the menu (including NaBocklish Cigars and "Irish Club" whiskey). You will probably be most interested in the list of the Association's officers, trustees and the members of the banquet committee. I would imagine that the descendants of the men listed are among your current membership. I have the program scanned as 8 separate jpeg photo files. I assume you would like a copy of it. Please let me know if you want me to e-mail it to you or print it out and mail it to you at my expense. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
