cdp monthly theme - park

Letterkenny Town Park or Bernard McGlinchey Town Park, as it is officially known as  is situated on the site of an 18th-century woodland. It was officially opened on 12 May 1999 by TD James McDaid.
The theme of the 40,000 m2 (10-acre) park is "Peace". The park is laid out with a herb garden, flower beds, mature and new trees, an orchard area, playing areas, bowling green, walks and playgrounds, has leaf-shaped gates at several entry points and has a tea room which opened in 2008..

A Garden of Remembrance opened in honour of the memory of members of the Gardaí and Army who have given their lives in service of the United nations. A stone bench was unveiled in the park on 10 July 2007 to honour James Duffy VC (Victoria Cross)

  1. The park is beautiful and such green, green grass there. Be wonderful to walk through there and explore what's there plus there is a seat I could sit for a rest and take it all in.
    Take care.

  3. One understands now the "green" about Ireland!
    Beautiful!
    What can I say, it warms up, we´ll have a BBQ later but. No rain. How long will our green remain without the rain?
    Yet: A happy day to you, Bill, let´s enjoy whatever comes...

  5. Again I am reminded why Ireland is called the Emerald Isle. My Irish friend and I were planning a visit before the coronavirus, but we'll get there. Hope to meet up then!
