In October 2022, after an extensive property search and rigorous due diligence process, TFGA successfully purchased the Tabernacle building, a historic landmark located on the main street of Longford.

This acquisition sets the stage for an exciting transformation, marrying the building's heritage significance with contemporary office spaces.
