Knocknacarra Community Centre Officially Opened by Mayor Lyons
Knocknacarra Community Centre was officially opened on Thursday 11th June 2015 by his worship the Mayor of Galway, Cllr Donal Lyons.
After many years of debate, planning and construction, Galway City Council is delighted to be bringing the facility into operation for the benefit of Knocknacarra and the wider community.
Comprising a large multi-functional room, community meeting rooms and a coffee-dock area around a centrepiece sports hall and dressing rooms, the centre will benefit existing groups and sports clubs while also catering for the growth of new clubs. It presents an opportunity for existing groups and clubs to grow and it can play a positive part in the development of the Knocknacarra area and the wider community.
It can cater for everything from small groups looking for a meeting space, amateur drama societies, gymnastics, dance and other classes such as aerobics and pilates, to the larger and more established sporting activities such as basketball, soccer and badminton. It is a very flexible space.
The centre has the capacity to attract national league basketball games and tournaments thereby putting it on the national stage, attracting football to the venue and contributing to the local economy. It is a facility of which Knocknacarra and the City can be very proud.
