Children free to use park playgrounds on Sunday.

Belfast City Council voted to allow children to use the swings in city parks on Sunday. Swings in public parks were tied up and padlocked so that they would not be used on the Sabbath, day of rest and worship.

This film shot for RTÉ News shows children playing on swings, a slide and roundabout in a Belfast park.
