POOL CLOSED: Leitrim Co. Council are currently undertaking repair and refurbishment works on the Acres Lake Swimming Pool, which will result in the Pool not re opening for the summer season. A problem with the paintwork surrounding the Pool emerged three years ago and despite efforts to resolve the problem, flaking of the paintwork occurred again prior to the reopening in June. The Council have conveyed to the Pool Committee and local public representatives that they are committed to the long-term future of the Pool and regret the inconvenience caused. However, they are confident that the long term problem can be successfully addressed and that the Pool will re open in June 2012.The Annual swimming Classes will now take place in the Swimming Pool at the Ramada Hotel.
PRIDE IN DRUMSHANBO: The idea of a new Amenity Area or Park along the river through the middle of Drumshanbo has been put forward by the community group Pride in Drumshanbo. A Feasibility Study is underway to determine if the site is suitable. As part of that, we need to hear from you! There will be a public meeting about the project on tonight (Wednesday) in the Ramada Hotel at 8pm to discuss these ideas and the project in general. All are welcome to attend.
