The Pavilion will be a single storey changing facility to complement the existing buildings and cater for additional requirements brought about by the indoor sports area and will include six new changing rooms; two official rooms and facilities.

Minister O’Neill said: “The Rural Development Programme, through Local Action Group SWARD, are providing nearly £800,000 towards the cost of this very important project to the Mid Ulster area. This is one of many strategic projects that my Department is supporting across the north which are designed to help boost investments in rural areas and maximise the drawdown of the EU funding available.”

The Minster continued: “This project will provide a high quality indoor multisport and multi activity hall and pavilion and will increase participation from under-represented groups such as females, the elderly and those with a disability. It will also improve quality of life of those living in rural areas providing much needed access to recreational services for rural dwellers.

“This is a key aim of my Rural Development Programme and I am delighted that locally, the progress is tangible and visible to all. The project is due to complete early in 2014 and will be available to people from across the locality, and indeed further afield to benefit from this wonderful recreational facilities for years to come.”The indoor sports facility (2,400 sq metres) will contain three pitches (25m x 32m) and a viewing area.
