Athenry For Athenry
Our local playground is over 12 years old and needs immediate attention.  The only way we can afford to do this is with the help of the community and well wishers.  

The playground is used all year round by children from all over the parish of Athenry and visitors to our town, even in its current condition, however, now it is in danger of being closed if we do not find the funds to replace the damaged equipment and make necessary repairs.

We would dearly love your help in restoring this wonderful amenity in our small town.

A cháirde,

A note on things that happen when we're not paying attention: predators prey on weak things and unfortunately our playground was an easy target in recent times as it seemed that no one was looking out for it, and no one was. So the seesaw was forcibly removed from its rightful place in the playground and dumped into the river that runs alongside.

Today, in a daring and courageous rescue, the seesaw was retrieved quietly and unannounced from the river. It is actually in quite good condition considering it was there for several months. We will make efforts to save it and reuse it if at all possible but if it is not possible to save it a new one costs €1,200.

Please share our cause with your family and friends (and maybe even your boss) as we do our utmost to ensure our beautiful playground is restored and maintained for the enjoyment of all. Is mise le meas, Shelly

Folks thanks to our most recent donor... we have raised over €2,000! Thank you so much - you are all wonderful. You will be happy to know also that thanks to 8 families amounting to 30 people (parents and kids) today, we swept the playground and filled 15 bags with leaves and old mulch. So our work to reopen has begun in earnest. The picture below shows some of the parents taking a well deserved break. Some are missing from this picture but you will see them in action in the album we uploaded to facebook @athenryforathenry.

So folks, we have reduced the Fund amount to €10,000 for the moment as we would like to reflect more accurately the amount donated to date. We are so grateful to everyone who has donated. Some work will be starting this week - we are very excited - but there is a lot to do. We'll keep you posted but the playground will be very busy this weekend with washing and sweeping - weather permitting!!! Thank you so much :-)
