Cllr. John Kennedy has today welcomed the unanimous agreement by councillors to approve his motion petitioning the Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media to help make it easier for the Glenalbyn Pool Project to obtain government funding.

The current Minister is Catherine Martin who is also a local TD for the Dublin Rathdown constituency, where Glenalbyn is located.

Cllr. Kennedy said: “The motion asks Minister Martin to review the awarding guidelines of her department’s Large Scale Sport Infrastructure Fund (LSSIF) to make it more feasible for standalone swimming pool projects such as Glenalbyn Pool to obtain support from the fund. Regrettably, a previous application for the project in relation to the fund was rejected largely because the Glenalbyn Pool project is not a multi-purpose facility.”
