Longford is the county town of County Longford. It has a population of 10,008. It is the biggest town in the county and about one third of the county's population lives there. Longford lies at the meeting of Ireland's N4 and N5 National Primary Route roads, which means that traffic traveling between Dublin and County Mayo, or North County Roscommon passes around the town. The station in Longford on the Dublin-Sligo line is important for commuters.

'Green' / Recreation / Conservation (G)
In essence this broad GZT category is intended for zones which cater for 'green', recreation and conservation related issues.
Active open space (G4) is a sub-category into which zones which provide for stadia, GAA pitches, golf courses, rugby or soccer fields etc should be placed. If these facilities are part of a much larger open area zone then a judgement call is required to determine if the zone falls within this sub-category or the Open space, park sub-category (G1). As a general guide, if more than 30% but less than 50% of the area would be take up with the facilities mentioned above then it is probably the case that the zone should be classified into this sub-category, with a judgement call being required to make the final determination. However if more than 50% of the land area would be so taken up then the zone would definitely need to be classified into this sub-category.
