Newtowncunningham’s Orange Hall in Co Donegal has officially reopened its doors – four years after it was burnt down.
A memorial stone commemorating local Orangemen who died in World War One has been restored, as has the lodge Bible, which was found among the debris following the fire.
Newtowncunningham Deputy Master, Stewart McClean, said the rebuild had been a “tremendous accomplishment” and thanked the Irish government who made a financial contribution to the project.
“The upgraded property has been built for use by the local community and will be utilised not only by the lodge and accordion band, but also a range of groups and organisations in the area.
“We are confident the hall will be a wonderful asset for east Donegal for generations to come,” he said.Tags:
