People's Park for Wexford town

A People's Park is to be created on the outskirts of Wexford town. The 18-acre park in Killeens abuts the site of the proposed new Loreto Secondary School.
Mayor Cllr. George Lawlor said it will be 'a welcome and significant addition' to the amenities in Wexford town and district.
He said the park will include water features, a walkway and it's hoped a permanent monument to the 800 Wexford men who died during the Great War.
County Council Chief Executive Tom Enright said the €1.5 million development will act as a strong focal point for the community in an area of relatively high housing density.
