Donegal County Councillor Gerry Mc Monagle has said he is pleased with the response he received from Council Officials and fellow councillors at yesterdays Municipal District meeting in Letterkenny.

Cllr Mc Monagle is calling for CCTV to be introduced to the Bernard Mc Glinchey Park after the latest act of anti social behaviour in which a saw child’s slide was smeared with excrement.

Cllr Mc Monagle received the full support of his colleagues when he demanded that council find the neccessary funding to erect CCTV at the Park to deter further incidents of anti social behaviour.

He told the meeting “The safety of our children whilst playing in our Parks must be paramount”

As a result of my motion Council officials have now agreed to come back to a workshop in early February with costings for CCTV but more importantly to identify a stream of funding to enable the installation of CCTV at the Bernard Mc Glinchey Town Park.

“I will continue to work with council officials on this issue to ensure that CCTV is installed at the Bernard Mc Glinchey Town Park in order to enhance the safety of the Parks Visitors and to act as a deterrent to anti social behaviour at the Park,” added Cllr McMonagle.
