‘Dis­ap­point­ing’ that St Mary’s Donore got noth­ing

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS - BY HU­BERT MUR­PHY RIGHT: The re­cent open­ing of the new St Mary’s dress­ing rooms re­cently, just part of am­bi­tious plans for the Donore club in the fu­ture.

THE cathaoir­leach of the Lay­town/ Bet­tys­town area coun­cil, Cllr Paddy Meade, has said that fund­ing from the Town and Vil­lage scheme for a new play­ground in Lobin­stown is vi­tal.

The new fa­cil­ity has al­ready se­cured €90,000 and the ad­di­tional €32,000 se­cured last week will as­sist with ramps and other ad­di­tions.

That will in­clude wel­come signs and work on a water bucket well. ‘It’s a great day for that area as it has had very lit­tle fund­ing over the past num­ber of years,’ he stated.

He said his aim for next year is to work with the St Mary’s club in Donore in se­cur­ing fund­ing for their am­bi­tious plans at the club.

‘I am dis­ap­pointed that they did not re­ceive fund­ing this time,’ he re­marked.

‘It is some­thing that I had to see ad­dressed for next year. They do great work in the com­mu­nity and that war­rants sup­port un­der this scheme.’
