Doughiska Playground will also be refurbishment along with An Sean Bhaile estate, with these projects being allocated €9,750 each.

East Galway TD Ciaran Cannon has said that the funding will ensure enhanced play facilities for children and their families in the county.

“I`m delighted that Minister Zappone has announced over €450,811 to Local Authorities across Ireland for the refurbishment of existing playgrounds,” said Minister Cannon.

“I’m pleased that the full range of projects funded by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs include important safety works, landscaping works that will support and extend the play value and inclusivity for all children and the provision of accessible playground equipment which will enable children with disabilities to use and enjoy their local playgrounds with friends and families.
