Funding from North Tipperary’s County Council’s own resources will be provided to build a playground in Newport, according to Junior Minister Alan Kelly.
Deputy kelly said that he had received this commitment from county manager Joe MacGrath this Monday.
“This is fantastic news and I’m delighted we have taken this huge step. I have been pushing the absolute need for a playground in Newport for some time now.
“It is now a case of locating an available and safe site for the playground and this is something I am working very hard on at the moment with the Newport Community Council and the Newport Playground Committee chaired by Fiona Bonfield,” he said.
