Repairs to boom at swimming pool to take place next month
REPAIRS to the boom at Clondalkin Swimming Pool are due to take place in May following significant delays.
South Dublin County Council confirmed that the maintenance company have been booked to be on site in May this year to fix the boom, which has been broken since August 2021.
The repairs to the boom were scheduled to take place on January 24, 2022, but despite the scheduled plans to fix the boom, a spokesperson from South Dublin County Council told The Echo that “significant issues were discovered” relating to the transducers when a specialist contractor visited the pool and will now require a full replacement. Since opening in 2008, Clondalkin Leisure Centre has experienced a range of different technical difficulties, and in 2019 it was reported that €238,000 has been spent on repairs to the Centre since its opening, including €10,000 on swimming pool repairs.
