Campaign Group For West Wicklow Pool Apply For New Funding

The group have applied for funding through the Town and Village Renewal Scheme, which puts emphasis on social and economic recovery for towns and villages with a population of 10,000 or less.

An application by the County Council for Stream 1 funding from Minister Shane Ross’s department, to carry out an in-depth feasibility study to confirm the site for the pool and to commission specialist architect drawings was deemed unsuccessful in January. 

Last August the Minister for Health Simon Harris gave a commitment to the community that the pool would be in place within two years, but without the funding to carry out the study, that seems less likely.
