Councillor calls for security measures at Carlow Town park

There are renewed calls for security measures to be installed in Carlow Town Park.

Yesterday an elderly couple and their grandson were attacked by a group of youths while on a boat on the river.

It’s believed their belongings were thrown into the river by the group.

Its the latest incident there – all of the life bouys in the area were also destroyed in recent weeks.

Councillor Fintan Phelan says the park should be a safe environment.
