Ballymote playground remains closed due to safety concerns

A community playground in Ballymote, Co. Sligo remains closed because of safety concerns, despite expectations it would be open this month.

Ballymote Community Playground has been closed for a number of months but following a recent annual safety inspection, further issues need to be dealt with.

Sligo Fine Gael Councillor Dara Mulvey says that having met with council officials and working with Ballymote community, it is hoped to secure funding to get repairs and replacement of items done as soon as possible.
