There has been a lot of talk over many years about Mitchelstown’s New Leisure Centre. Over E2 million has been raised by local involvement over many years yet no real progress has been made. Planning Permission was granted for a major project at the Canon’s Field but this is also at a standstill. There has been a lot of talk about a new 34 acre site on the Glanworth Road since the last public meeting on March l. Four months later it now looks as if the Leisure Centre Group have opted for the original idea which is the Canon’s Field. The Planning Permission for the project includes an indoor multi purpose sports hall, activity hall, fitness suite, meeting room, youth room, cafe area, and two outdoor all weather pitches.
