Last July questions were raised over whether there was sufficient money for the park and playground.

It was confirmed then that an allocation of €60,000 from the 2018 Local Property Tax fund  had been allocated, alongside the €100,000 secured in 2016.

Significant drainage works have taken place at  the site.
