Ballybunion playground receives 80,000 euro in funding

Funding of 80,000 euro is going to the playground in Ballybunion. The announcement has been made by Minister for Children Brian Lenihan at a function in Dublin. It’s part of the National Play Policy which was launched earlier this year. Ballybunion is one of seven public playgrounds in the county. Kerry County Council is looking for applications from community groups which want to develop play areas. The Council will provide insurance cover provided the groups meet certain criteria. The funding has been welcomed by Deputy Tom MacEllistrom.
