Ionad Teampall Chróine
Established in 1998, Ionad Teampaill Chróine is the hub of community activity in the Rosses area.
Housed in the converted St. Peters Church it sits as guardian at the top of Dungloe town. St. PetersChurch, built in 1853, served it’s congregation until 1980. In 1999 Forbairt Na Rosann, the local development committee secured funding to convert the building to a community administrative centre. The centre has been the springboard for many initiatives that subsequently spread out around the area.
