@ number10a, I go to the Train Station Gym on the Dungourney Road - great place, i can't recommend it enough. The lads that run it are sound, they're all about functional fitness and no sh*te about them. Posers need not apply, lol!

They've got an offer on facebook at the moment too, no harm sussing them out if you're looking for somewhere new.

Slightly off topic, but could anyone recommend a good pool in Midleton, for proper lane swimming?

Thanks.

Even though it's under new management, I wonder will they struggle to regain the older members. Alot of them have gone elsewhere already, and couldn't be blamed for being slow to go back there.

I've heard as well that they're back in the old venue for a few months, but are sorting out a new premises on main st? Anybody else heard this?

Yep, that's what I heard as well....there's a nice big open unit on the ground floor there backing onto the car park at the rear. That or the 2 floors above Irwins electrical. Had a look at them myself a while back, but landlords were looking for us to fit the building out as well....all that's there is the core. There's some serious money to be pumped in there before it'll be ready for use.
