Moville Sea Scouts

The Masonic Hall faces Lough Foyle and the date on the back of the building, just under the chimney, is 1903 (maybe that was the year it was built).  I couldn't find any info on it except the what is posted below.

The newly formed Moville Sea Scouts were delighted to be given the use of the Masonic Hall in Moville.  There are almost 50 youngsters in the Sea Cubs and Sea Scouts.  The Masonic Hall has been extremely generous and have given them full access to the hall which they have told them that they can use anytime.
They can basically have the hall when they want – and they aren’t charging them for the use of it. 
The Masonic group have repainted the hall inside and have put a small kitchen into it too.  Meanwhile the Sea Scouts are delighted that they have been given free access to the hall.

  14. My dad was born in 1903! The hall reminds me of an old school house or church. But it is very nice that the Masons are allowing the scouts to use it for their meetings. The only problem is that sea scouts tend to get to busy they get tied into knots. :)

  20. A very generous offer indeed and one hopes that the Sea Scouts make good use of it to further their cause. Can you give us more info about the organisation?
