Sinn Féin TD for Sligo/North Leitrim, Michael Colreavy, has welcomed the news that funding of over €197,000 has been approved for Glencar Community Park for the development of a playing pitch.

Speaking to the Leitrim Observer, the TD said “I very much welcome the fact that this funding has been secured, this is great news for the community in Glencar and it is also great news for St Osnet’s GAA club.

“The club, which I believe is active in all age groups from under 12 to senior has for a long time been looking for a pitch and facilities to call their own and this is a very proud day for all belonging to the club.”

Deputy Colreavy went on to say it was heartening in this era of youth obesity to see a positive decision taken which the whole community could benefit from.

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the people of Glencar and the committee that made all this possible. I cannot wait to see this fantastic development up and running and I’m sure the people of Glencar and St Osnet’s GAA are itching to use their new facilities,” he said.
