Three communities protested in unity at Dublin City Council to save local services under threat of closure. Crumlin, Sean McDermot Street and Coolock pools are facing closure by DCC. These communities held a protest at a council meeting where the council passed a motion to defend the pools.
Councillor Joan Collins (People Before Profit Alliance) commenting, after the motion was passed,
'We still have a battle on our hands. The body language and the response from the City Manager was still negative, he stated that there was very little money and it was likely that the Council budget could be cut by a futher 500 million Euro.
What we have to do as a campaign is get 100's of people to go to Sean Ardagh’s and Michael Mulcahy’s clinics, lobby for the monies, meet with the workers, advertise the hours that the pool is open, make it impossible to close the pools down. Keep up the pressure.'
