Carnegie Arts Centre :: Shared Description

Located in the Old Carnegie Hall.
this multi-purpose arts centre has a 140-seat theatre, a full-size cinema screen, a performance area and a gallery space for art exhibitions. Technical features include high-quality stage lighting and sound system fully equipped for concerts, lectures, drama and exhibitions.
The library and community hall were opened in 1916. As well as a library, the building was multi-purpose. Cumann Na mBan held first-aid sessions there, and the Irish language enthusiasts held classes on the premises. Concerts and dances were also common events. However, its purpose was short lived as the political events of the 1920s unfolded. It was taken over and occupied by the British Army for a period of seven months in 1921, and later was burned down during the Civil War in September 1922. Rebuilt in 1926, then gradually declined as a venue. Re-opened as the Arts centre in 2008.
