Colgan Hall

Colgan Community & Resource Centre Ltd.

The Colgan Community and Recourse Centre Ltd, Carndonagh, Co Donegal has recently secured funding for a public arts project, through the Northern Ireland Arts Council, (Building Peace through the Arts Re-Imaging Communities Programme) funding being allocated by the European Union's Programme for Peace and Reconciliation (Peace III), Arts Council or Ireland and the International Fund for Ireland. We initially have to advertise for a facilitator/artist who will run a series of workshops to develop a brief for the art piece which will eventually be commissioned.



Located on Chapel Street in the heart of Carndonagh, Co. Donegal, the 'Colgan Hall' is a listed building of historical significance in the locality. While fund raising and upgrade developments are ongoing, the Centre currently hosts activities on a daily basis. The Centre has also staged some very successful drama productions recently and has a memorable association with local drama clubs for decades.

There is now a dedicated group of staff employed in the Centre:
DonaghConcertGroupAdministration: Jeanette Longwill
Caretakers: Johnny Shiels & Charlie McKinney

The "100 Club"



The new extension at the Colgan Hall is now operational. This extension is a great asset to the hall with the inclusion of a lift to facilitates those who to date have not had access to events taking place in the upstairs hall.


The cost of this addition has necessitated the taking-out of a €150,000 loan. There is now substantial debt to be paid off. To ensure we have the ability to meet repayments, we need to do further fundraising.


We are grateful for the overwhelming support for this project we have received from the community and we feel confident that with your continued help and support we can meet our commitments to this project. In light of this the committee has decided to re-run the "100 Club".
