Local community welcoming news that future of Bailieborough Swimming Pool is secured

The Bailieborough community is welcoming the news that the future of the local Swimming Pool and Leisure Centre has been secured.

It was announced this morning that an estimated €100,000 will be drawn down from the Covid-19 stability fund for the pool.

The money will ensure the Board of Management can start to plan for the reopening of the centre.

Chair of the Board, Paul McFadden said the news is being welcomed throughout the community.

Joe O’Reilly commended the Board of Management for their work and thanked Minister Heather Humphreys for her support:
