Fine Gael Cllr Paraic Brady
Cllr Paraic Brady has called for Longford County Council to provide a play area at the Dromard GAA grounds adjacent to the creche.
“There’s a playground there - well, I wouldn’t call it a playground, but it needs to be moved to a location where we can turn it into a proper playground,” said Cllr Brady.
“I’ve received numerous calls regarding people travelling to other playgrounds. I’d like to see Dromard have a playground of their own that families can bring their kids to a proper playground. We need to get this off the ground.”
He also suggested a sensory garden for the same site.
Director of Services Barbara Heslin said that community groups are actively pursuing plans for a play area including a sensory garden and are engaging with the council.
