Cassandra Hand Centre
The Cassandra Hand Centre at Ball Alley Lane recently refurbished by the Clones 1500 Heritage Committee and Clones Community Forum, was officially opened by Minister Dick Roche on Monday 13th February 2006 in the presence of a large cross-community gathering.
This 19th century Gothic-style building is dedicated to the memory of Cassandra Hand, whom upon her arrival in Clones in September 1847 successfully set up Clones Lace.
The profits from this enterprise enabled her, in 1859 to finance the construction of this building which was originally used as a school for infants and girls.
Fully restored to its former splendour this historic building is now available for hire. This centre offers the ideal facility and comfort for:
- Management meetings
- In-service programmes
- Staff development seminars
- 2 meeting rooms available that together cater for up to 60 people and each singly up to 30 people
- Cost €20 per hour per room or €30 per hour including tea/coffee and biscuits.
- The Cassandra Hand Centre has Public Liability Insurance
