By Esther Hayden

Wexford County Council received €14,000 under the Capital Grant Scheme for Play and Recreation for Redmond Park playground.

Announcing the funding last Friday Minister for Children and Youth Affairs Dr Katherine Zappone said that a total of 22 Local Authorities will benefit from funding for projects under the

scheme for new and innovative play and recreation projects and the improvement of existing facilities.

The €14,000 which has been allocated to Wexford will be used to fund the refurbishment and extension of Redmond Park playground.

Minister Zappone said: 'Every child needs access to play areas. We are now focussing our support on those projects which are inclusive, accessible, safe and take into account the views of children.'
