Christmas draw with top prize of €10,000 launched this week
One of Inishowen’s biggest ever building projects is set to get underway next year when Buncrana Leisure Centre gets a €3.8 million upgrade that will secure its long-term future once and for all.
Plans for the ambitious project have already been designed and it will go out to tender early in the new year with work scheduled to start in the second half of 2014.
First opened in May 1989, substantial works will see the entire centre completely gutted inside. It will be closed for up to 18-months while a new pool, including kiddies pool, is constructed as well as a state-of-the-art new gym, changing rooms, sauna and steam room.
Crucially, the new plan will see the local leisure facility move to a much more sustainable and efficient heating plan too.
