Meeting on Doonbeg playground campaign

Champion Chatter

A PUBLIC meeting takes place at 8pm tonight (Thursday, November 24, 2022) in Doonbeg Community Hall to launch a campaign for a new playground in the village.

Local business woman Rita McInerney, of Doonbeg Development encouraged people to attend to kick off the process to provide locals and visitors alike with the facility. “There was a playground in Doonbeg, but it fell into disrepair,” Rita said. “The great news is that we have had a lot of families with small children move into the village, especially during Covid, and there is definitely a demand for a playground. It would also be another amenity for visitors in the summer.”

A site at the back of the hall, beside the school and naoínra, is one which Rita said would make an idea playground. “It’s central and it’s safe and there’s a real opportunity now to develop it,” she said. “What we’re looking for now would be to create a committee, ideally with some parents on it, to drive this forward. It’s the kind of thing where you could be a member for a few years while your kids are small and then hand on the baton to others. All are welcome and this is a real opportunity to develop a valuable amenity for Doonbeg.”
