Pop Up Pool Comes to Ardee

Louth County Council are delighted to announce that, in association with Swim Ireland, a Pop Up Pool will be provided in Ardee from next January until March 2023.

This is part of a programme by Swim Ireland, who are providing and moving two 12m by 3.4m steel structures around various locations in Ireland. The Pop Up Pools are currently being enjoyed by residents and visitors in Blessington and Tubbercurry.

Ash Walk, Ardee is the lucky location chosen for the Pop up Pool site, which will be set up in early January for a three month period.

Ashley Hunter from Swim Ireland said “We are delighted to be able to offer this attraction at various locations throughout Ireland, this is a fantastic opportunity to introduce the life skill of swimming locally to the citizens of the Ardee area, and to allow those who can already swim to brush up their back strokes. All ages and abilities will be warmly welcomed.”

Joe McGuinness Director of Services for the Ardee Municipal District said “Don’t let the date put you off, Mid-Louth Residents won’t have to break the ice, the pool is heated to 30 degrees and enclosed in a Marquee with changing rooms. It comes with a ramp and a hoist to ensure accessibility for all users. I’d encourage you all to get your togs on and either take the opportunity to get some swimming lessons, or to just enjoy having a dip in a heated pool in your own locality.”
