Work continues behind the scenes to find a way to enhance the building and indeed maybe find somebody with the vision (and money) to help bring about the eventual restoration or even replacement of the building with a new and better facility for the area.

Hi Brian, Perish the thought of restoring the present building. Your second suggestion regarding a complete new facility is the way to go. Funds must be available from the Government for a sports facility in the Warrenpoint area especially when the site is historical. Logistics could be controversial since the space is limited. However, sooner or later, a financial angel will arrive with a complete plan for the site.

As it is there is not much to restore, however in the interim what is there should be made more usable until (as you say) a financial angel arrives. I feel that the idea we had about restoring the original Edwardian front, and rebuilding/extending the building seawards is not unreasonable and indeed if I had the money myself I would do it.

Our forefathers and previous town council had the foresight to invest in the facility back then, and over 100 years later with more and more people staying at home surely somebody has the vision (and money) to make it work?
