The long-awaited, €7 million Finn Valley Leisure Centre and swimming pool is set to open to the public at 10am on Saturday.

Area residents can count the years they have awaited the pool in decades, ever since a committee of local people came up with the idea and took up a door-to-door collection about 35 years ago.
