will be known as the Brian Friel Centre and will serve as a visitor centre in Glenties. The courthouse was built by the Grand Jury in 1843 and is located near the main street and garda station. The ownership was later transferred to Donegal County Council. They will now lease it to the Brian Friel Trust.
Brian Friel was the best-known Irish playwright of his generation and an accomplished short-story writer who had a strong affection for Donegal.
