Smoking ban to be introduced in North Tipperary playgrounds

Smoking will soon be outlawed in playgrounds across North Tipperary.

This follows a motion which was passed at this weeks meeting of North Tipp County Council.

Councillor Jim Ryan asked for smoking in playgrounds to be outlawed, saying the effects of second hand smoke to children, have been well documented.

He received the support of his fellow Councillors.

Councillor Ryan says the local authority will now get the ball rolling.
