The Council has agreed to match government funding of 80,000 euro in order to allow the construction of a playground in Ballybunion.

County Manager Martin Riordan says the council will include the money in next year`s budget. Mairead O Neil is Chairperson of the Ballybunion Playground Committee. She says Christmas has come early to Ballybunion.
