Exciting plans for former Waterside school – SF

Sinn Féin Councillor Christopher Jackson commenting on the news that planning approval has been given for plans for the old Clondermot School in the Waterside


He said “This development will undoubtedly build on the great work that is currently ongoing between the communities in Irish Street  and Top Of The Hill.

Plans for the area include a full size Gaelic/Rugby pitch, a full size 3G soccer pitch, tennis courts, cricket rickets, a pavilion that will provide changing facilities ,and will also provide a much needed space to run community programs and events.

This iconic development will not only strengthen the work of bringing the two communities together it also has the potential to take away  an interface by creating a truly shared space where people of all ages and backgrounds will want to come to.
