Members of the Ballinrobe public are invited to attend a Public Consultation meeting as part of the efforts to restore a town hall facility to the town.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, November 12th, in St Joseph’s Primary School, Ballinrobe, at 8o’c, and all local clubs and individuals are invited along.

“In 2008 interested community groups were invited to send representatives to attend a meeting with a view to building a much-needed community facility in the town. In 2014 Ballinrobe still has no community facility. These same committed townspeople, along with new members, are even more determined today to see a new town hall built on the site of the old town hall,” explained Michael Sweeney, chairperson, Ballinrobe Town Hall Committee.

“The purpose of this meeting is twofold – to show an outline plan of layout and design using the space available and to gather feedback on what local people would like in their town hall.

“All societies and organisations are being asked to make a very special effort to attend this important meeting. If, however, you are unavailable on the night, an open-door, drop-in session will be held on Saturday, November 15th, from 12noon to 3pm, at a venue that will be confirmed shortly.

“At that drop-in session, the public will be invited to view outline drawings, make written submissions, discuss proposals with committee members and sign up to assist.”

Anyone interested in actively participating on this major project should contact Michael Sweeney (chairperson), Siobhan O’Malley (secretary), Sean O’Connell (treasurer) or Liam Horan (PRO).
