Funding for the refurbishment of Astro pitches in Clondalkin leisure centre  welcome


TD for Dublin Mid-West Eoin Ó Broin has welcomed South Dublin County Council’s commitment to fund refurbishment works for the astro pitches in the Clondalkin leisure centre.

Teachta Ó Broin said: “A number of residents from the local area have been in touch about the damage to the astro pitches in Clondalkin leisure centre due to anti social behaviour.

“South Dublin County Council (SDCC), has confirmed to me that a funding stream has been agreed for the refurbishment of the boards surrounding the astro”

“Due to the level 5 restrictions the Astro and leisure centre have been closed and SDCC has anticipated that refurbishment works will begin once the construction lockdown is lifted”

“SDCC have also confirmed they believe the antisocial behaviour will decrease once the facility reopens when level 5 is lifted” “These astro pitches are an important local facility and hopefully the works to repair the damage will commence as soon the public health restrictions allow.”
