Longford Athletics Club have announced that their new indoor facility college will be built in St. Mels College with planning permission to be submitted next week.
Longford Athletics Club committee member Paddy McPhilips exclusively revealed to Shannonside Radio that the planning permission will be submitted next week.
“The planning permission is going into the paper next week” explained McPhillips, Longford A.C having launched their ambitions plans last June.
“Declan Rowley in St. Mels College has been fantastic” added McPhillips, “He can see the synergy as the school have the use during the day and the club outside that.”
“It’s in the centre of the town so it’s in the right area, it will be possibly 60 metres long x 20 metres wide and it won’t be exclusively for athletics, you can see other sports clubs using it.”
