I am pleased to confirm that 5 playgrounds in County Galway are to receive funding of €242,500 for new playgrounds and refurbishment of existing playgrounds.
The funding is available under measure 2 of the Clár funding administered under the Department of Community and Rural Development.
The communities to benefit include Milltown Development €50,000 for refurbishment of existing playground, Clonberne Community €50,000 for a new playground, Caltra Community €50,000 for a new playground. Funding has also be allocated to Clonbur Woodland Park €50,000 for a new playground, and Lettermullen €42,500 for playground refurbishment.
‘Community playgrounds are an essential part of community life and provide a resource where young children can play safely in their own communities. I want to acknowledge the assistance of Minister Michael Ring and his Department in providing the funding which will be of enormous benefit to the communities involved’.
