Local people voice their opinion over the Palais building

People from Belturbet have voiced their support for the saving the iconic Palais building in the town. Over 80 people turned up to a public meeting in Belturbet Civic Centre last night to discuss the future of the building, after it was confirmed Cavan County Council had bought it.

Subject to planning, the local authority intends to partially demolish the building, and build six social housing units for elderly people.

These people at the meeting felt very strongly about keeping the Palais.
