A proposal for a basketball half-court was brought up at the latest Clane-Maynooth Municipal District (MD) meeting on Friday, April 1.

Social Democrats councillor Aidan Farrelly asked Kildare County Council (KCC) in a motion to investigate the feasibility of installing the court in Prosperous Town Park.

His motion was seconded by Fianna Fáil Cllr Paul Ward: however, he urged KCC to ensure that it would consult young people on the installation of the court.
