Darndale Belcamp Park Renewal Project


John Healy interviews MADELEINE EBBS from Dublin City Council and social activist LANCE SPRATT, and some students from Darndale National School accompanied by Gerry Cooley to talk about the claim to repair the playground and the football pitch. The football teams can’t use the pitches because the quad bikes destroyed them and the playground was too dangerous for the kids. Lance explains how he got involved along with some other people and asociations in the Darndale Belcamp Park Renewal Project to restore it. The kids from Darndale National School have been spreading the word in the neighbourhood to ask to leave the park alone so they can have a safe playground. They sing an addapted version of the Pink Floyd song “We don’t need no education” @ 8’13”.
