After the lifting of some government restrictions earlier in the Summer, a decision was made by Council to re-open our playgrounds and measures were introduced to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 under the detailed guidance from the HSE.  

Following completion of a COVID compliant Risk Assessment, posters were put up in the play areas showing a maximum number of visitors allowed at any one time, in addition to advice on safety precautions for parents/guardians.    

However, despite these efforts Barn Meadow playground has repeatedly exceeded the maximum number of visitors allowed at any one time. This has regrettably forced the Town Council to close the playground from 8:30am on Mondays until 4pm on Fridays, until further notice. 

This temporary closure is to protect the school children as it is paramount that the school remains open.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we will be reviewing the situation next week.
