Sinn Fein in Donegal has invited Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to Swan Park in Buncrana to see the devastation caused by last year’s flooding.
Senator Padraig Mac Lochlainn has written to the Fine Gael leader outlining the situation.
Mr Varadkar will be visiting Buncrana on September 11th next for the official opening of the new bridge at Cockhill.
Senator Mac Lochlainn told the Taoiseach “You will be aware from your visit last year that one of Buncrana and Inishowen’s main community and visitor amenities; Swan Park, was destroyed by the devastating floods that we endured.
“Unfortunately, despite repeated representations, our community have been unable to secure the necessary funding from Government to reconstruct and reopen our park.
“I believe that it is imperative that you take the time, while in Buncrana, to visit Swan Park to see for yourself, it’s present state and to meet a delegation of Donegal County Council officials and some of the local community leaders who have been campaigning for the reopening of the park.”Tags:
