Ruairi O'Dúlaing, Senior Parks Superintendent, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council commented as follows:
dlr has one of the highest rates of sports participation in Ireland and we continue to develop first class facilities for public use so that all our citizens can enjoy sport and physical activity. We are delighted that construction can begin on a new multi-purpose community facility. This club has a strong public access ethos, with funding specifically provided by the Capital Programme. We look forward to the new pavilion opening in Autumn of this year."
