Welcome to Áislann Rann na Feirste
Áislann Rann na Feirste is a community centre that was developed and completed by the people of Rann na Feirste, their friends and neighbours.
The Áislann committee was established in 1997 and the start up capital was granted to them by the IFI, Údarás na Gaeltachta, Roinn na Gaeltachta and MFG in 2007. The rest of the money was raised by the community themselves by running events and fundraisers. The local culture and heritage plays an important role in the community’s identity and the Áislann will hopefully preserve and capture the identity. The centre itself is built in Páirc Sheáin Néill, which was bought by the committee in 1997 but it wasn’t until June 2008, that the construction began. The Áislann opened its doors in June 2010 and now plays a major role in the community.
Facilities in the Áislann centre include the Main Hall which is equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system, a Library and Computer Room, a commercial style Kitchen and contemporary Meeting Rooms…Read more
