Wicklow Swimming Pool receives grant of €200,000

Fine Gael TD for Wicklow/East Carlow Andrew Doyle has welcomed the announcement today of €200,000 for Wicklow Swimming Pool  as part of the Disabled Access & Energy Upgrade scheme for Local Authority Pools and has said this is an important step for ensuring access for all as well as improving the running costs of the pool. 

“This is a significant injection of funding to the Wicklow Leisure centre which is a hugely popular facility and amenity for people of all ages in the town of Wicklow and surrounding areas.  Any improvement to local services which promotes and encourages a more healthy community lifestyle is to be welcomed. 

“The facility at the Coral Leisure centre has a 25meter deck level swimming pool as well as a 9-meter learner pool. This improvement work will be completed by September 2012.  Further information for opening times and summer courses is available on www.coralleisure.ie.”
