Council agree new contract for Leisure Centre

SOUTH County Dublin Leisure Services and Tallaght Leisure Complex have confirmed a new three-year maintenance contract and are set to commence an in-depth review of the maintenance issues and energy use in the centre in the coming months.

The council shared the update at a recent area committee meeting for Tallaght, following councillor Charlie O’Connor’s question regarding the progress update at the leisure centre.

In their response, the council said that the centre’s facility manager is in direct and regular contact with user groups and clubs and, along with a Council representative, recently met with local swimming clubs to update them in relation to facility use and maintenance.

There have been long-standing issues with the boom at the leisure centre, which has been stuck in a permanently upright position for numerous years and has prevented 25m-length swims at the centre.

In February this year, the issues at the centre were estimated to cost more than €500,000 to fix.

Similarly, there have been ongoing issues with the boom in the pool at Clondalkin Leisure Centre, which were due to be fixed in January this year but have faced further delays since.

Despite the repairs required, Tallaght Leisure Centre and Clondalkin Leisure Centre and the swimming pool are currently open and have remained open throughout.
