It's now February 2011, almost two years since I posted the story of how some children around here built their own playground on land behind the Grotto in Farranboley. You can seeit above - just click on the Kids do it themselves button.
Since then DLR County Council has cut down the tree that the kids used to make their swing. We're still waiting on the results of DLRCoCOs Open Spaces Consultation.
The Mulvey & Columbanus Community Group has also sent a petitition to DLR signed by more than 200 residents, asking for our playground to be rebuilt on its original site . The Group Chair Louise Keogh says that most people want the playground to be built on Columbanus Green -its original site overlooking the Dodder and the old Dartry Laundry, and very close to theMilltown Luas Stop.
What do you think?
