Who we are
Malin Head Community Association Ltd is a grass roots charitable organisation. The Company was constituted in 1999 primarily to support the development and operation of the Malin Head Community Centre.
The community centre, a modern purpose built facility completed in 2011, envelopes the original St Mary’s Hall erected in 1912 and a subsequent extension completed in 1977. The dedication manifest “Priests & People United”, while superseded under the current constitution, serves as an acknowledgement of our shared rural heritage and reminder of the importance of parish halls as a community hub in twentieth century Ireland.
