An application has been made to Donegal County Council for a playground for Glenties under the Playground Programme 2007 – 2010. We are hoping that our Council representatives in the Glenties Electoral Area will look favourably on our application. It is vital that we are included in this programme as the next application would not be until 2011. As a community we must make every effort to lobby our representatives in the Council for this most essential need in our town. The successful applicants will be informed on 31st July 2007.
