Endorsements

Calling on our Public Reps & GE20 Candidates to show support.

 

Following our first committee meeting for 2020 NFPC passed a motion that calls on our Public Representatives and Candidates in the forthcoming General Election to state their position on our campaign.

 

The matter arose due to Swords Based Councillor Brigid Manton calling for a swimming pool for Swords. Motion from Councillor Brigid Manton: Swimming Pool for Swords. AI051223 (7)

 

We need your help.

 

We need our supporters to help keep our campaign for a publicly available Swimming Pool firmly on the agenda and ask you to call on your public representative to respond to our request.

 

They will soon be coming to your doors seeking your vote in the upcoming General Election, please ensure to ask them to support our campaign and submit their endorsement.

 

 

The below request has been sent to our current TD's, Councillors and Senators.

 

Dear *NAME*

 

Happy New Year, North Fingal Pool Committee held their first meeting of 2020 this week and one of the resolutions agreed is to reach out to all our public representatives seeking their public support for our Campaign. I would be very grateful if you would respond to the 3 questions below.

Our recently launched website www.swimfingal.ie has attracted huge support with several hundred already signing up for news and updates. Our newly published Questionaire has also generated a big interest and some valuable data from the public on the type of facility they require.  https://www.swimfingal.ie/questionnaire

We propose to publish a testimonial page on the website featuring our key supporters to include a brief statement in relation to our campaign. We are actively reaching out to Public representatives, Community Leaders, Business People and relative individuals and groups. Also in the lead up to a possible General Election in 2020 we will also be contacting candidates. 

1) Do you support the need for a Publicly available Swimming Pool in North Fingal?

2) Do you agree the location of the pool should be within a 15k radius of Balbriggan?

3) In your own words can you provide a statement in relation to your support for a Swimming Pool in North Fingal?

The 2016 Census confirmed that Fingal is the youngest constituency in Ireland and also the fastest growing one, we need proper amenities and facilities for our young people and their families.

1) Yes

2) Yes

Senator Clifford - Lee

1) Yes

2) Yes

3) I am fully supportive of your campaign. I have raised this matter in the Seanad on several occasions and will do all I can to see it delivered. It’s a vital piece of infrastructure for the large population in North Fingal

Cllr Karen Power

1) Yes

2) Yes

3) For a number of reasons we need the amenity of a swimming pool in our local area but those aside it is fundamental given where we live, our location to the coast that our children in particular should have a local swimming pool where they can take lessons and develop their confidence in the water. Yes, personally it is shocking it is not already provided to the community as an amenity

Cllr Tony Murphy

1) Yes

2) No, the pool should be in Balbriggan

3) I have debated recently in Fingal at ACM live against Swords Councillors to have the swimming pool built in Balbriggan.

Cllr Dean Mulligan

1) Yes

2) Yes

3) I unreservedly support the campaign for a publicly funded swimming pool in North Fingal. As an area with one of the youngest demographics, this facility is a necessity for young people and families, as a health & sports amenity. Swimming is for old and young alike, for public health and relaxation. Leaving this in the hands of hotels and private sports facilities reduces access and is unacceptable. Public pools were provided to the working classes over 100 years ago, with all our new wealth there is no excuse other than lack of political will.
