A significant enhancement of facilities to the tune of €50,000 at a playground in Killorglin will commence on Monday.

The upgrade, which includes the installation of a new level access roundabout, trampoline, basket swing and other additions, will make the amenity more accessible and enjoyable for all users.

However, because of the upgrading works the Kerry County Council playground will close for a period of five weeks.

Kerry County Council received €31,000 in funding through the CLÁR Programme funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development towards the works and the remainder of the cost is being met by the Council itself.

Cathaoirleach of the Kenmare Municipal District, Cllr Michael Cahill welcomed the investment.

"Killorglin Playground is a hugely popular amenity for the town and its hinterland. I am really pleased that the work can now commence on this project and look forward to the greatly enhanced facilities for all users," he said.

"The closure for a period of five weeks is unavoidable but I would ask everyone to bear with it and we look forward to the re-opening of this important community amenity as soon as possible."
