Playground gets a minor facelift - August 2017 by S.G.
The playground has recently undergone a minor transformation with new metal railings added to replace the old broken wooden ones. A new structure has also been erected to replace the old one which underwent fire damage in 2015, the new one has allready been taken over by the local teenagers and is currently being used as a smoking hut. Some of the local lads have also made the playground into their own personal football ground and have even refused to stop playing football when approached by a local lady who had her two young children in the playground. Westmeath County Council are to be complimented on repairing the playground to a high standard, unfortunately they may find themselves returning many times as the playground has allready had the some of the newly fixed railings shaken loose from the concrete base.
