Castleconnell Environment group came into being in May 2007 with one view in sight and that was to design, develop and implement a community playground.
It came about as a result of a few concerned mothers who felt that the village had a serious lack of facilities for children in the area. They started fundraising in June 2007, and with the support of the community, local schools and businesses the playground opened its doors to the children of Castleconnell and surrounding areas in December 2010
It has been a huge success and a great addition to the area not just for the kids but also for new mums, dads, grannies and grandads to meet up.
We hope to continue in the same vein and have other projects in the pipeline
