We would like to invite your projects/organisation to host an exhibit/info stand at the event and the more interactive or tactile they can be the better!!!
This Expo event aims to showcase services and projects available in Longford to support people’s sense of Community Safety & Wellbeing (Financial, mental, health, relationship, physical) and we want to have lots of interactive activities and information stands on the day with exhibits inside and outside.

All Garda national units will be in attendance along with Civil Defense and Fire Service. Learn CPR, meet the armed response unit and the Garda Dog Unit, learn how to sign up to the Civil Defense. Assistant Commissioner Paula Hilman will be in attendance as well.
