Only one company has applied for the contract to build Carlow Town’s skatepark on the Burrin Road.

Cllr John Cassin said: "It's possibly because it's a specialist kind of a build. It takes more time that a normal build. All concrete has to be very smooth, it has to be like glass."

Cllr Cassin added: "The Council have to go off and get it (the bid) verified to check what it should cost so we're getting bang for our buck. We don't want to pay too much."

It was put out to tender by Carlow County Council earlier this year.
