Limerick City and County Council has announced funding for the construction for a Kings Island Multi-Use Games Area

Limerick City and County Council has announced funding for the construction of a Multi-Use Games Area in St Mary’s Park, Kings Island

Following consultation with residents and relevant stakeholders in the area, a proposed site was identified for a “MUGA” –  These facilities have been a great success in other parts of the City and County in recent years.

The facility, which will be 13mx26m in size, is to be within walking distance of all residents in St. Mary’s Park.

The main source funding is to come from the Economic & Social Intervention Fund which is funded through the Limerick Regeneration Directorate. An additional commitment of funding has been secured through Limerick Sports Partnership and Sláintecare, Healthy Communities which will bring this project to fruition.




This sporting facility will provide a top-class amenity for community of St Mary’s Park.

The Mayor of the city and county of Limerick Cllr Gerard Mitchell has welcomed the announcement, “This is another project delivered by Limerick City & County Council to enhance local community facilities. It is really important for young people to have a free and safe space for a kickabout. This is a great initiative and one that we all, I’m sure, welcome for the area.”

Speaking of the announcement, Chairperson of the St. Mary’s Park Regeneration Committee, Helen Flanagan said – “I am delighted that funding for this project has been allocated to the community of St Marys Park and the wider Kings Island community. In addition to the existing playground this project will provide an amenity for older children and young people to play in.

Principal of St. Mary’s National School Eoghan O’Byrne also added – “The funding that has been secured for this MUGA through the Limerick Regeneration Economic and Social Intervention Fund will provide the community of St Marys Park with a fantastic amenity for all the children and community to enjoy. I welcome the delivery of this project for the community.”
