A ‘FOUNDER’S wall’ has been unveiled in Kinawley Community Hall to recognise the efforts and generosity of the local people who contributed to the £710,000 hall.
The hall had been in the works since 2008, and was opened in December 2012.
Since it opened, it has been used for a range of events and by a range of groups.
These include by local schools, scouts, drams groups, music groups, for commercial meetings – and more.
And, on April 21, there is a country night being held to raise money for Marie Curie and Fermanagh Children’s Hospice.
Chairman of the community association, Kevin Lunney, was delighted that the wall was created to thank the 340 or so people who contributed over £100,000 to the hall’s cost.
“On St Patrick’s Day we unveiled it to list the people whose generosity supported the project.
“There are about 340 people’s names on the wall. It as been well received – locals are delighted with the hall and to get the recognition of their contribution.”
The new hall hosts a large sports and function area with stage, another smaller community room and associated amenities.
It is situated on a stand alone site, beside the old barracks in Kinawley village.
