The playground next to the Family Resource Centre was closed late last year, due to anti-social behaviour.

The decision was taken to close the community playgroundprotect young children from injury as a result of broken glass, equipment, etc.

Now, a public meeting may be called to discuss the situation.

A spokesperson for the FRC said: "If the community wants to hold such a meeting, we will see what can be done.

"For now, the playground remains closed."

Eddie McCarrick, Sinn Féin local election candidate in Ballymote/ Tubbercurry has called for immediate remedial work and upgrading to start.

He also wants the installation of CCTV.

Mr McCarrick said:

"Funding should be sought from Europe via the LEADER programme.

"We need to ensure the younger children in the area are not unfairly denied the right to enjoy a wonderful amenity by a small minority."
