Dundalk Institute of Technology has confirmed that the Institute purchased the JJB Soccerdome (15,539m2) & Ice Dome Facility (3,513m2) in January 2014. The combined purchase price for the buildings in question was €2,800,000.

The JJB Soccerdome has been refurbished and now operates as a student/public gym and sports centre. DkIT have advised that the facility operates on a self-funding basis.

The Ice dome facility is currently vacant. I understand that DkIT is exploring a number of options in relation to the property.
