To all associated with Marian College swimming pool:
It is with a heavy heart that the Board of Management announces the closure of Marian College Swimming Pool. Notwithstanding the efforts of the pool manager and her team, the Covid 19 pandemic, restrictions and related costs have had a significant impact on the long-term viability of the swimming pool.
We would like to thank you for your loyalty and support of the pool since its opening in 1966. The pool, which was the first indoor swimming pool built in Dublin in the 20th century, has been at the forefront of training and teaching in swimming, water polo and other water sports. It has also been a great resource for the community, providing enjoyment, fun and life-saving skills in all things aquatic to thousands of its users down through the years.
The Board would like to particularly acknowledge the contribution of all the staff, the community, the local authority, community gain funds and sporting agencies who supported the pool since its inception in 1966, and our patrons the Marist Brothers.
The pool could not have operated for so long without your support and we sincerely thank you for it.
In respect of subscriptions, frozen as a consequence of Covid 19, members who wish to apply for a refund should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. and we will respond in due course.
