Colgan Hall

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

The  sculpture, which sits facing the front of the above photo,  represents unity, strength and continuity in the local community.  It was designed by John O’ Connor, an artist from Waterford.
