Fingal County Council is happy to liaise with all the relevant stakeholders within the town of Rush to

would be subject to available funding and permission being approved under the Part VIII Planning
Process following public consultation.
The Balbriggan Swords Operations Section currently manages and maintains 16 playgrounds, 5 multiuse-
games-areas, 4 x 5 pieces of Adult Outdoor Fitness Equipment and 1 Skatepark. All of these play
facilities are inspected on a weekly basis to comply with play safety regulations and any further play
facilities will place additional demands on existing staff resources.
