Ballinrobe Musical Society and the Mask Swim Challenge have donated €1,250 and €300 respectively to the campaign to rebuild Ballinrobe Town Hall.
This latest boost to the coffers means that local fund-raising in Ballinrobe has now passed €325,000.
The Musical Society staged My Fair Lady this year and the €1,250 was a portion of their raffle takings for the week of the show. The Mask Swim Challenge is a popular local event among young and old and attracts a large crowd to Cahir Pier each year to cheer on the participants.
The Town Hall committee is now trying to access public funds to propel the campaign to build the hall.
The proposal is to build a hall with a gross floor area of 1000m2. It will consist of an auditorium and main hall area with seating for over 400 people.
Anyone interested in supporting this major project should contact Chairperson Michael Sweeney (087 2588 615) or Secretary Siobhan O’Malley (087 207 2307).
