***PLEASE NOTE REVISED DATE AND TIME***
Following a number of apologies and suggestions this protest will now take place:
Dear Glenalbyn Supporter
This Thursday Glenalbyn will be shut 5 years.
I have organised a protest / photo outside the main entrance of Glenalbyn. It is vital that we keep Glenalbyn, and its closure in the public eye. Please forward this to any other supporters you know. It will only take 20 minutes of your time.
If you are going to attend please email back to confirm attendance.
Again please don’t hesitate in contacting me on this or any other local issues.

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Press Release 13 December 2013
Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, as owners of Glenalbyn Swimming pool regretsto advise that it has instructed DLR Leisure Services Ltd., operators of the facility to close the pool with immediate effect for public safety reasons.
This decision has been taken following the receipt of a report from Consulting Structural Engineers Horgan Lynch and a recommendation from the Council’s own Capital Projects Engineering Team. The Report detailed significant structural defects with the pool’s roof, which represent a potentially serious safety risk for users of the facility and staff at the complex.
The Council will now examine the report in detail and consider its implications along with all available advice in relation to the facility. In the meantime and until further notice, the pool will remain closed.
The Council regrets the need to close the pool which is unavoidable. DLR LeisureServices is contacting the various user groups and customers who currently utilise thefacility to advise them of the closure.
DLR Leisure will continue to operate the Council’s swimming pools, located at Meadowbrook, Monkstown and Loughlinstown and opening times of these facilities are listed at www.dlrleisureservices.ie
