Mayor for Limerick City and County councillor Gerald Mitchell said that the games area is to be welcomed.

“This is another project delivered by Limerick City & County Council to enhance local community facilities. It is really important for young people to have a free and safe space for a kickabout. This is a great initiative and one that we all, I’m sure, welcome for the area,” he said.

Chairperson of the St. Mary’s Park Regeneration Committee, Helen Flanagan said – “I am delighted that funding for this project has been allocated to the community of St Marys Park and the wider Kings Island community.
