Committee chairman Dermot O'Keeffe said the committee has now given up and will disband within the coming weeks after residents claimed land the council allocated for the community centre has now been allocated for a playground in Swords. 'We have more or less given up on having a sports centre and community centre at Brackenstown,' Mr O'Keeffe told the Fingal Independent.

At at a council meeting, Cllr Darragh Butler had asked for an update on the proposed centre but the county management responded: 'As previously reported to the committee, the problem for the progressing of this project is the absence of the necessary funding for the delivery of this centre.'
