Labour TD calls for funding for childcare centres

Three childcare centres in West Kerry feel they are being treated unfairly by The Department of Justice. Labour TD Breda Moynihan Cronin is calling on the department to provide funding for centres in Lispole, Ventry and Ballyferriter under the Equal Opportunities Childcare Programme. Deputy Moynihan Cronin says the centre in Ventry is currently appealing a refusal from the department for funding. Meanwhile Ballyferriter and Lispole childcare committees are awaiting a decision. The Kerry TD says now there is a growing concern that the sites acquired to build centres may be in jeopardy.
