Development of new indoor athletics facility is “win-win” for everyone

The development of a new indoor athletics facility on the grounds of St Mel’s College is a win-win for everybody.

Declan Rowley Principal of the College says while the school is delighted to facilitate the building of the new centre on its grounds, it’s not just their students that will benefit.

Longford Athletics Club are hoping to lodge plans for the centre this week, which would include a 60 metres long x 20 metres wide track as well as space for traditional field events.

It will facilitate further opening up of the college to other sporting clubs and organisations as Declan Rowley explains:
