Tinryland Park closed

Tinryland Park was closed because a "pending claim" caused over 200% of a spike in the park's insurance premium - from €2,500 to €8,300, Carlow Live understands. 

Tinryland Park was first opened in 2012 after €65,000 was fundraised by locals.

It now boasts an astro-turf soccer pitch, a playground, outside exercise equipment, green areas, and seating.

There are hopes the park can be back open in early January. 

The astro-turf remains open.
