Clare T.D. and Chairman of the Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs and Trade Pat Breen said today (Wednesday) that he is very pleased following representations to the be advised by the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs that €4,000 in funding has been allocated to the Parish Playground Committee in Labasheeda to upgrade the playground facility in the village.
“This funding is very welcome as it will be utilised to enhance the playground facilities in the Parish given that the plans include the development of a family recreation area within the grounds of the current playground.
The project also involves the upgrading of current toilet facilities to include a baby changing area and wheelchair access. A picnic area will also be developed and the area adjacent to the river will be fenced off to prevent access to children.
This upgrade will transform the playground facilities making it an ideal location for families and children in the Parish of Labasheeda and surrounding area to enjoy.
