Glenalbyn swimming pool has served the needs of our community in Kilmacud, Stillorgan and surrounding areas for over 40 years. Many of us have learned to swim there and there is little doubt that over the years it has saved many from drowning and improved the health and fitness of our community. The pool however is under threat and at risk of being shut down permanently by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council. It was shut down for repair work in Autumn 2013 and was due to be re-opened once these were completed. Unfortunately the council appear now to have decided to spend the money ear marked for this project elsewhere and it is very possible that our pool will be permanently closed. This would be a huge loss to our community and in particular the children attending our local schools.
We are running a petition at Kilmacud Medical Centre asking the council to spend the money on the repair of the pool and re-open it without further delay. We urge to you to support this campaign by signing our petition and by contact your local representatives seeking the re-opening of our swimming pool.
