Acacia & Fingal County Council support North County Dublin Communities

by | Feb 13, 2017 | Facilities Management

Acacia strengthens relationship with Fingal County Council in the management of a second, recently opened state of the art Community Centre facility in Balbriggan, North County Dublin.

Building on Acacia’s recent success in winning the Fingal Community Centres Management Framework Contract, The Board of Directors of Fingal Community and Recreation Services have engaged Acacia to oversee the operation of the Castleland community facility on behalf of the Local Authority.

Acacia Community Centre Management representatives were on hand on 9th February, along with the Mayor of Fingal and representatives from Ardgillan Community College, Fingal County Council and the Dublin & Dun Laoghaire ETB, to celebrate the opening of this modern multi-purpose built facility in Castleland, Balbriggan.

Comprising a number of spacious meeting rooms, dance studio, sports hall and an all-weather pitch available for classes or training purposes, the facility is located adjacent to Ardgillan Community College which shares the sports hall and the all-weather pitch with the Community Centre.  This Shared Facility Initiative will ensure that this state of the art facility will be utilised to its full potential.

Speaking at the launch Paul Reid, Chief Executive Fingal County Council said “I wish to compliment Nuala O’Connor and the other centre managers and Fingal County Council community staff for the excellent work they do bringing these facilities to life as a resource for all the community. Fingal County Council is committed to maximising the economic and tourism potential of Balbriggan and with facilities such as this also help foster a vibrant community in the town”.
