Blackrock Swimming Pool reunion this Saturday

Blackrock Swimming Pool reunion this Saturday

A reunion night for anyone who fondly remembers the old Blackrock Swimming Pool will take place this Saturday night June 15th.

The event for anybody who remembers the old Blackrock pool will take place in The Neptune Bar on Main Street from 8.30pm.

On the night there will will be music from The Reserved Moments, a band from Castlebar in Co Mayo, who are fronted by former pool caretaker David Tuomey.

Further details on the event can be found on Facebook here but all are welcome to pop along to reminisce about a venue where many a fun moment was shared.

Blackrock swimming pool opened in 1962 and was, at the time, the only 50 metre pool in the country. Its tiered seating could accommodate up to 800 spectators. It eventually closed in the 1980s and was demolished in 1995.

The Marine Court apartments currently occupy the site where it once stood.
