|DUNLEER CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND NOW OPEN!!!|
The Dunleer Community Development Board (DCDB) are absolutely delighted at the phenomenal good response that there has been from one and all to the very successful opening of DUNLEER CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND in Beech Wood Park, Dunleer Co. Louth.
Over the course of a year, the DCDB Playground Fundraisers Sub-Committee experienced sometimes trying circumstances, but we were always buoyed up by the extraordinary goodwill we received from the community to drive forward in our efforts to secure this wonderful amenity for the Town and it's surrounding communities. The Playground was officially opened on Saturday, March 31st, in a fun filled opening ceremony, music being provided by the very talented Phillipstown Youth Orchestra, Dunleer.
It was a steep learning curve for us all, people who each have their own separate and busy lives, but we were delighted to give our time and effort freely for our community. We emerged stronger, wiser, and with an absolutely wonderful shared experience of what a community can do if it is done right, and pulls together.
The DCDB would like to thank Louth County Council, including the Officials and Councillors, who made the ground available for our Playground project, Louth Leader Partnership for assisting and advising us on financial assistance, Crawford Construction, the Main Contractor, and Paddy & Shane Marron, the Groundwork Sub-Contractors, for the exemplary work undertaken.
And finally to you, the Children of Dunleer, the whole reason why we began this dream, and seen it through to reality.
Your smile at enjoying this Playground makes everything we did all worth it.
May you Play safely, healthy and happy, and look after this playground, and when you are bigger, you care for it as much, if not more, when you have your own children.
It is for YOU.
DCDB Executive Committee, April 11th, 2012
