A councillor has claimed that facilities in McGrath Park in Bagenalstown are "desparately bad" compared to what other towns and villages around Carlow have in their areas. 

Cllr Arthur McDonald also claimed that Bagenalstown was a "real disadvantaged area". 

He was speaking at this month's meeting of Bagenalstown Municipal District and he claimed that the facilities in McGrath Park "had been there since 1945". 

"There are fabulous county centres in rural areas and you come into Bagenalstown and we're lacking," he added.
