Recently Donabate Parish Hall as part of their Cultural Programme had or will have: The Through the Lens Photography Group put on an exhibition on the last weekend in February.-The Bleeding Pig Cultural Group are putting on a film early March to celebrate International Women’s Day -The Donabate Dramatic Society will have a production at the end of April. During the time slots for these events to take place the daily activities are suspended. This programming approach allows for blocked events and daily activities to co-exist to provide for the whole communities needs. The plan at present is to close the parish hall to weekly activities for a period of 3 weeks in October 2022 and a staggered closure during the period of February/March 2023 to allow cultural events to be held. There may be some other periods for Cultural Camps during the holiday periods.We hope and trust that you will support activities and events in your newly relaunched Parish Hall. On Friday 25th March all groups and individuals currently using and connected to the Parish Hall will be invited to the Parish Hall on that evening for a relaunch of all the activities & events with the Lord Mayor of Fingal County Council present, Cllr Seána Ó Rodaigh and other Councillors in the area and Officials.The photographs are of the set up of the screens grant aided by FCC being set up and the painting of the railings at St Patricks Parish Church grant aided under the Village Renewal Scheme. We are proud and delighted so far with the work done on the Parish Hall and cannot thank Fingal County Council enough for the support in the form of grant aid towards these works. Your community Parish Hall at over 200 years old Is the oldest operating facility in the Dublin Diocese, isn’t that something to celebrate!
