About this group
We are a community group campaigning to get a swimming pool for West Wicklow. In our Municipal District of 26,000 people we have no swimming pool and must travel a minimum of 20 minutes to access swimming facilities. The physical, mental, social and emotional benefits of swimming are undeniable as well as the importance of an awareness and knowledge of water safety. We are working with local schools, sports groups, councillors and TDs to lobby Wicklow County Council for a pool for West Wicklow.
Reasons to support this group
Our whole community of West Wicklow regardless of age, gender, physical or mental ability will benefit from this swimming pool.
This swimming pool will help to increase water safety awareness in our community of West Wicklow and help future generations to gain the key life skill of swimming.
Local West Wicklow schools and sports clubs will benefit hugely from this pool as they will no longer have to travel out of Wicklow to access swimming facilities.
