Kinawley Community Hall

Kinawley Community Hall (a new £710,000 cross-community centre) was officially opened on 22nd December 2012 by Bishop Leo O’Reilly and Rev. Brendan Mc Carthy. This hall came about after years of deliberation. It was built against all the odds at a time when some felt it would never happen because of the downturn in the economy.  The hall is a valuable asset in the community, with a hall committee in place.

here are events/meetings scheduled every night of the week. It is a popular venue for dances, music classes, indoor sport, fitness programmes, birthday parties, funeral meals. The list goes on. In September 2013, Eddie Stones conducted a healing service in what was a packed hall. Last Christmas (2013) there was an ecumenical puppet show with refreshments afterwards. Kevin Mitchell takes the bookings for the new hall. E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it./ 078 47641041. This was the prayer used at the official opening: Heavenly Father, today we thank you for this new hall and for everyone who helped make this dream a reality. You are a loving Father who provides for all our needs. On this happy day as we look forward to the birth of our Savior, we ask your blessing upon this new building (+) as it marks a new chapter – a new birth in the life of this community. Today we ask for healing as we acknowledge a painful past but refuse to let it have the last say. May this new community centre nurture and strengthen the bonds of unity and peace among us. May this new community centre which we now declare officially open assist in building a bridge of love and friendship among us into the future. We ask this in Jesus name. Amen
