Funding for Glenties Playground has been confirmed

The Leas Cheann Comhairle and a Councillor in Donegal have welcomed funding to repair the necessary items at a playground in the Glenties area which was under threat of closure.

With mounting repairs works and issues surrounding insurance costs, the local committee that is currently responsible for its upkeep are no longer in the position to cover the costs, which was initially provided by local, leader and lottery funding.

Pat the Cope Gallagher hopes the secured funding can be used to carry out the repairs on the playground and subsequently put forward a motion for the county council to takeover the ownership of the  playground.

Fianna Fail and Donegal County Councillor Anthony Molloy says he is pleased that the funding has been confirmed
