Labour TD Willie Penrose is welcoming the announcement of a €58,000 grant for a skatepark in Mullingar. The grant is part of a €3million fund from the Department of Sport for local recreation facilities around the country.
“I am delighted that Mullingar has received the very maximum amount available under the funding. It means the green light can be given for a skatepark for use by young people in the town.
“I congratulate those who made the submission for the skatepark to receive funding from the Department of Sport, in partnership with Irish Public Bodies and the local authority.
“It is a great boost for the town in terms of the provision of new sporting and recreational facilities for young people locally.”
