Tierney welcomes Galliagh allotment plan

Cllr Brian Tierney

The Northern Ireland Housing Executive has announced plans to transform an area in Galliagh, Derry into community allotment gardens for residents.

Work is to begin on the area between Glencaw Park and Leafair Gardens this coming Monday.

Last week, the area saw up to 40 youths taking part in anti-social behaviour, leaving residents distressed and two teenagers were arrested by police.

Local Councillor Brian Tierney has welcomed the announcement saying it's a step to prevent more anti-social behaviour from happening in the area........
