The people of Balbriggan have been trying for 30 years to have a swimming pool built, and have had numerous promises by councillors and politicians pre election for a swimming pool, only to have these promises turn to dust post election. There is a general feeling of anger that Balbriggan has not got its own swimming pool. Having seen numerous attempts for a pool to be built in the town, only to see these plans collapse at the final stages of consultation.
Balbriggan warrants a swimming pool,it has the population size to sustain one, especially when you throw in surrounding towns into the equation like Skerries, Rush, Lusk, Julianstown ect., who would also reap the benefits of this venture. We just lack the capital investment from Fingal Council and the Government to get this project off the ground.
Given that the town is rapidly becoming a Ghost Town with many shops and pubs closing down. A swimming pool, would help to bring in much needed investment, and help lower the chronic rate of youth unemployment. Balbriggan also has a booming population of young people but does not have the facilities for them in terms of a swimming pool and leisure centre. Given that Balbriggan is a coastal town, it is imperative that our youth get to learn to swim, and that Fingal Council and the Government act on this decisively.
