Path widening work at Letterkenny Town Park has now been completed, it has been confirmed.

Welcoming the completion on works, Cllr Jimmy Kavanagh said the widening of the path would be of benefit for runners taking part in the parkrun.

Cllr Kavanagh: "I would like to thank David Donnelly and his team for getting this work completed and for making such a great job of it, the narrow path was causing problems for the Letterkenny Park run organisers and participants as it was causing a bottleneck with runners meeting walkers and slowing the runners up, this now solves the problem.

"The park run has been getting more and more popular and attracts a big crowd most Saturday mornings, recently the organisers have been getting different work groups in the town to participate, and it is also good for the town that there is a park run available for the many visitors who come to Letterkenny at the weekends.

"I'd like to thank the organisers for raising this issue with me and I am happy that the event can now be even better with the improved path.

"I'd like also to thank Cllr. McMonagle for seconding my motion at council to get this work done."
