Kerrane welcomes reopening of Ballaghaderreen swimming pool

Facility will open on October 16th

Sinn Féin TD Claire Kerrane has announced that the swimming pool in Ballaghaderreen will reopen on Monday, October 16th.

Deputy Kerrane said she was delighted with the news but admitted the reopening process had taken far longer than expected.

“I am mindful that the loss of the pool in particular has had a huge impact locally and the it was especially a loss during the summer months,” she said.

“I know that many parents locally relied on the pool as an activity for their children with many availing of swimming lessons. Of course as well as that the pool was used by people of all ages and I am so glad that we will see it reopened next month”.

Contracts for the running of the pool and gym were signed at the end of last month and the facility will reopen under a new operator.

“This is a little bit of good news for Ballaghaderreen and I know it’ll be widely welcomed and fully supported once again when reopened,” Deputy Kerrane concluded.
