Lifebuoys along the Owenass river near Mountmellick Amenity Park have disappeared yet again, prompting concern for safety of children playing in the park.

The chairperson of Mountmellick Town Council Rosemary Whelan has called for them to be replaced.

“The lifebuoys have gone again at the play area. If anybody sees anyone tampering, please report it. Somebody’s life is in the hands of that,” she said, speaking at the May TC meeting.
