I came across a page from an old Connaught Telegraph dated 29th Dec.194 . The last piece of the date is gone and it contains plans for the proposed new 'Concert Hall' to be built in C/bar.
It was to have being built by Mr.A.Bourke,owner of the County Cinema,C/bar and located on a site adjacent to the Post Office - property owned by the late Dr.Hopkins.
The paper shows the architects plan for the two story building & an artists impression of what it would be like.Looking at the would have being a fine building - very modern looking.
The article states that Mr.Bourke had secured the site & was waiting to procure the necessary permit to proceed with the building.
Anyone know what happened & why Castlebar never got its Concert Hall?
