Robinson Centre tale takes a new turn

Mon, Nov 28, 2016

The ambitious plans for the Mary Robinson Centre at her childhood home in Ballina looks to have hit another roadblock this week.

A special thanks to all of their loyal customers who helped us raise a fantastic €1,400 and the Ballina Community Sports Centre for loan of the spin bike.
