Annagry AOH Hall, Co. Donegal
Unlike the massive purpose built ballrooms
which sprung up in the fifties and sixties, this hall is an example of the small
which dotted the Irish countryside in small towns and villages which became the
locals only connection to the showband era.
Even though the big bands never played here, local showbands kept dancers going
and the hall is still used today for jiving classes
other local functions. The two photos are from 2009 (lower) and 2011 showing the
hall before and after its renovation.
