Con Colbert Hall


If you are planning a party this is an excellent opportunity to combine your fun day (family day) with the opportunity to do a little fundraising for your local Community Hall and Sports Complex.

Niall King of Shanagolden Bouncing Castles has kindly agreed to make a donation for every bouncing castle and marquee that is booked through the hall committee.

We would also like to make you aware that the hall is available to rent for a small fee of €50 for functions such as children’s parties (which can cater for indoor bouncing castles so you can beat the weather) and other family occasions.

Contact 087-1525597 to make your booking.
