Dublin City Council Swimming Pools to Close
Posted on Apr 12, 2010 by AdministratorDublin City Council is due to close three public swimming pools in Dublin. Swimming pools at Coolock, Crumlin and Sean McDermott Street in the north inner city are due to close as the council says it can no longer afford to run them. In contrast the swimming pool in Rathmines has seen a substantial redevelopment and is due to reopen later this summer. It seems somewhat ironic that these closures should occur at a time when Dublin City Council is trying to promote Dublin as the European Capital of Sport 2010.
