“Are they gone elsewhere, what happened?” asked Cllr Denis O’Meara, wondering what had happened to the swings, zipline and slide promised for Mountmellick Amenity Park in Irishtown.

“At the last meeting I was guaranteed they would be installed and in good faith I went out and told people,” he said.

Town Manager Ian McCormack said the equipment was definitely coming this time.

“Issues arose, I was away, they are since resolved,” he said.

He said the equipment was coming on Wednesday September 18 and would be completely installed within two weeks.

“That’s guaranteed,” Mr McCormack added.

“Unfortunately the summer’s gone now,” said Cllr O’Meara.
