Save Markievicz Pool & Gym

Save Markievicz Pool & Gym

Use an alternative location to build the Tara Metrolink station (such as where the Apollo House once stood), which does not require the demolition of the Markievicz swimming pool.

Why is this important?

The public Markievicz leisure centre, managed by the DCC, is the only available in Dublin City Centre with a 25mt swimming pool. Thousands use this public pool and gym. Local children learn to swim there.
On top, up to 150 people could lose their homes because the apartments above the pool will also be demolished with the current project. There is already a housing crisis in the city.

Reasons for signing

  • Dublin has a housing crises and too few alternatives to the newly refurbished public gym and pool
  • to support good cause
  • We have an obesity problem in Ireland and they want to take away the only gym and pool in dublin city center. I have seen the pool full of school kids learning to swim and having so much fun. Cop on
