Ríocht na nOg Playground.

The playground in Castletown is heading into its 3rd year. It is a fantastic facility to have in the village for all the children to enjoy some safe playtime and a nice place for parents to meet up.

The playground needs constant maintenance throughout the year and at the moment it is been cared for by one or two families only.

Parents are asked that use this facility to get involved on the committee of the playground to assist in some small way in the upkeep of this facility. Please contact Mary Keenan, Mary Treacy or Laura Delaney if you are interested in helping out.

Every little helps as it is a big undertaking for the families that are already keeping it so well.
