The new date, for the long awaited opening of the new 25 meter swimming pool in Castlebar, is now the middle of next month.
That was confirmed by council management at yesterday’s monthly meeting of Castlebar Municipal District.
The opening of the new facility had been postponed on numerous occasions over the past number of months, and the Cathaoirleach of Castlebar Municipal District, Independent councillor Michael Kilcoyne again asked at yesterday’s meeting if there was an opening date.
He was told the pool is due to open to the public from mid February.
The news was welcomed by the Cathaoirleach and councillors present.
