The long running saga over the availability of the Ballina Running Track and facilities for the community of Ballina continues to drag on.
Ballina Athletic Club and Moy Valley Athletic Club have had difficulties, to date, in sharing a sporting facility in the ownership of Mayo County Council.
At today’s monthly meeting of Ballina Municipal District, councillors discussed the matter and agreed with council management that the matter will be discussed in detail at a council workshop rather than in a public sphere.
It was confirmed by council management that a letter has been issued by Mayo County Council to Ballina Athletics Club to vacate the premises and facility, by the end of this month (April 30th)
Director of Services Tom Gilligan said he is very keen to have the management of the facility resolved as quickly as possible, in light of the need for the facilities at this busy time of the sporting year.
