The Irish Wheelchair Association facility at the Dr Oliver Murphy Sports Centre, Clontarf, Dublin has been completely refurbished and upgraded as part of a charity partnership with John Paul Construction.

The work included the installation of a new reception area, new flooring and a paint upgrade of the interior area.

With the facility serving many Irish Wheelchair Association members and the local community for a variety of activities including a fully accessible and inclusive gym, a full-sized sports hall for a wide range of wheelchair sports and other sports clubs, the new look is a huge boost.

“We are delighted that John Paul Construction came on board and completed this much-needed work at our Sports Centre,” said Rosemary Keogh, CEO of the Irish Wheelchair Association.

“Fitness is a key aspect in our members’ lives and this work will make the centre far more accessible for them. No doubt our members will really like the changes.”

“The Dr Oliver Murphy Sports Centre is a well-established sports facility in North Dublin that has played home to so many of our sports and activities for many years,” added Nicky Hamill, Director of Sport at the IWA.

“John Paul Construction are delighted to have had the opportunity to work on this upgrade project with the Irish Wheelchair Association who provide such a fantastic service to their members and the community,” said John Moran, Construction Director, John Paul Construction.

“We are proud of what we and our supply partners have achieved in delivering this project, which will have a positive impact for all members and visitors to Sports Centre in Clontarf.”
