COMMUNITY CENTRE

Over the last six months the concert hall built in 1910 has been restored through out in great detail so as to ensure it stands and serves the community for decades to come. Names like, the late Kathleen Lindsay buried at Killeen in the Mount Juliet State in 1953, James Ryan a popular merchant in the town at the time were to the fore to ensure Thomastown had a public meeting hall for all occasions. In fifteen days phase one will be completed with a spend of two hundred and seventy seven thousand. Two hundred thousand of this was funded by Kilkenny Leader Partnership. We feel the time is right to ask you for a greater response into the run in for completion of phase one. Thomastown is the next largest town to Kilkenny city. This facility will be something we can be all proud of as Thomastown people.
