Last year I set up a Flickr group called ‘Halls Of Ulster’. The idea is just to document Halls around Northern Ireland (and yes, Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan). They can include Orange Halls, Parish Halls, Gospel Halls, Ballrooms of Romance, Masons, Women’s Institute, Hibernians, GAA or Foresters. The main point is that they are venues set up and run for the enjoy and/or betterment of communities. So far there are just two of us, but as the saying goes, the more the merrier! And hopefully the more geographically (and politically) diverse!!
