My Department provided funding of €3.8m towards the original construction cost of the swimming pool in question. A further grant of €136,800 was provided in 2011 under the Energy Efficiency Upgrade and Enhanced Disabled Access initiative.

My Department has not provided funding for any repair work and does not operate a scheme for such expenditure. The management and maintenance of Local Authority swimming pools, including any required maintenance work, are matters for the relevant local authority in the first instance.
