Plans for more CCTV at the park are now at an advanced stage

More enforcement and more personal responsibility are what’s needed to really tackle anti-social behaviour in Carlow’s Town Park.

So says Carlow TD Pat Deering after a KCLR listener reported her and her young child witnessing a person who was drunk fall into the river there in just the last week.

The person had to be rescued and this listener said her child was deeply affected by the ordeal.

Plans for more CCTV at the park are now at an advanced stage but Deputy Deering says that’s not going to be the entire solution to the problems there.
