Minister Martin Cullen Welcomed to Athy for pool opening

Local Fianna Fáil TD Seán Ó Feargháil has welcomed the Minister for Arts, Sports and Tourism Martin Cullen TD to Athy for the official opening of the new swimming pool at Greenhills.

“The new K Leisure Swimming Pool at Greenhills has been open for a few months now and has proved to be a very popular venue.”

“The K-Leisure facility includes a 25-metre swimming pool with movable floor, a family changing area, spectator area, sauna and steam rooms, aerobics studio, gym and coffee dock.”

“This is a great facility for Athy and the Department of Arts Sports and Tourism supported the new pool with vital grant aid of €3.8 million under the Local Authority Swimming Pool Programme.”

“The swimming pool is a great local resource and will encourage local families to keep fit. Swimming lessons for local children are also important to promote water safety for summer holidays at the beach or abroad,” concluded Deputy Ó Feargháil.
