A visit to a pool has been the highlight of many families weekend, and there aren’t too many families in West Cork and further afield who at some point over the past number of years have not travelled to Dunmanway to avail of its 25-metre swimming pool and children’s pool.

Now in 2014 under the new management of local woman Jennifer Deasy, Dunmanway Pool is busier than ever and Jennifer and her team are looking at ways to the revitalise this facility and bring it to life again as they look forward to a brighter future with the build of a new facility Dunmanway Municipal Complex due to commence in 2015. Whilst the new build is under construction the existing facility will remain open for business offering a range of classes and activities for all ages.

Jennifer, who was previously the Leisure Club and Spa Manager at The Oriel House Hotel in Ballincollig, is delighted to be working in her hometown and looks forward to relocating there permanently in the near future.

“Our main focus is to provide a variety of activities, from adult and children’s swimming lessons, aqua aerobics and the recently launched pool birthday parties to intensive lane and triathlon training. We want to focus on becoming the The Home of Swimming in West Cork.”

Dúchas Clonakilty's first lecture for the Autumn promises to be of huge interest to all: Emerging from the Shadow of Tom Crean – The Parish Centre, Clonakilty, Thursday September 28th 8.30pm.

Lecture by Aileen Crean O’Brien & Bill Sheppard

In May 2016, Kerry man Tom Crean, along with Ernest Shackleton and four other crew members, landed the James Caird lifeboat on the rocky isle of South Georgia. The navigation of that small boat, across 1500 km through icy winds and towering seas, is regarded as the greatest ever feat of navigation. They then trekked across the forbidding and inhospitable mountains and glaciers of South Georgia to seek help for the rest of their crew, who were left behind on Elephant Island after their ship, the Endurance, was crushed by the Antarctic ice.

One hundred years later, Crean’s grandaughter, Aileen Crean O’Brien, set off with her sons and partner to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps. Join Aileen and Bill to hear of their adventures (and misadventures) on the Southern Ocean and the island of South Georgia.
