Council to match Government funding for Ballybunion playground

The Council has agreed to match government funding of 80,000 euro in order to allow the construction of a playground in Ballybunion. The Government funding was announced by The Department of Children in June but locals had to find a matching amount in order for the project to go ahead. 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.
