Due to the temporary closure of the Kilmore Leisure Centre Indoor Pool for roof repair work, there was a significant reduction in attendance and income. This has caused a temporary increase in the cost for provision of this service. It is anticipated to return to historical levels in the 2019/20 financial year.
