Back in the day I rode my BMX in Marley Park on a cracking BMX track. I say back in the day because it then got covered in a pretty good playground that I now use with my kids. However they will be able to share my experience as Dun Laoighaire-Rathdown County Council have announced details of a €58,000 grant to build a new track in the park.
Labour Councillor Lettie McCarthy is behind the application and the plans were developed with the help of BMX Ireland and technical staff from the Parks department. The grant comes from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport’s SportNation Grant Initiative 2013. Congrats to all involved!
