Ballinamore Sinn Fein candidate Maureen Martin praised the crucial role that Ballinamore Childcare plays in providing preschool and after school care for children in the area.
She went on to call for a new building to enable Ballinamore Childcare to provide a greater range of services to the community and create employment. She urged Leitrim County Council to act on this issue.
She said,“Ballinamore does not have adequate childcare facilities. There are no crèche facilities in the town. Currently we have An Naíonra Playgroup and Lollipops Kids Playschool and Afterschool. Neither property is designed to be a childcare facility. Without a suitable building there is no potential for Ballinamore Childcare to extend it’s services.
