UPDATE: Laois swimming pool reopens after unexpected closure

The swimming pool at Portlaoise Leisure Centre has reopened after it closed unexpectedly on Monday.

Portlaoise Leisure Centre took to Facebook to inform the public that the pool is closed due to 'unforeseen circumstances' on Monday afternoon. The next update from the Leisure Centre came late Monday night to say the pool had reopened. 

"We are open as per our normal timetables everyone. Apologies for any inconvenience today, sometimes these things just happen, camps are on as scheduled."

See the original closure message below:

"Due to unforeseen circumstances, the swimming pool is now closed until further notice.!!! Apologies for any inconvenience
The gym will remain open, bottled water can be purchased from the vending machine."

People were left speculating what the issue was. It is understood that it was a plumbing issue. 

Laois County Council's Sports and Leisure department which is over the Leisure Centre was not able to confirm the closure or give any further explanation.
