Our new playground is progressing well and installation of the equipment will be completed this week.

Our new playground is progressing well and installation of the equipment will be completed this week.

Surfacing is scheduled for next week and we are expecting a completion date by the end of September.

Excitement levels among the younger Fethard population are growing and we hope the playground will provide many hours of enjoyment for our children for many years to come.

We have been fortunate to obtain grant aid from both South Tipperary County Council and South Tipperary Development Council. Without this funding the playground would still be just a dream.

It is up to everbody in the community to ensure that once the playground is in place that it is properly looked after, supervised and maintained for the future.

With this in mind, there will be a meeting in the Tirry Centre on Tuesday, September 17, at 8pm to discuss the future operation and management of the playground.

A representative from South Tipperary County Council will be in attendance to offer advice to those interested in maintaining the playground and keeping it in good condition

If you want this playground to be looked after properly in the future, please come along to the meeting, all are welcome. People are needed to join a playground committee, but if you’re not interested in joining a committee volunteers are also needed to help out in other ways.

Please contact Carmel at 087 6851046 if you have any queries.

Through a huge community effort we successfully raised over €19,000 for this project, lets make sure that this effort continues and that we have a well run playground for a long time to come.

The new feature will be a most welcome addition to the recreational infrastructure of Fethard and the long awaited facility is badly needed.
