Athenaeum Ballroom, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford

The Athenaeum was built in the late 1892 as a town hall/theatre for the town of Enniscorthy. As a building, it has been an
important part
of local history for well over 100 years, including playing a role in the 1916 uprising. During the showband era, it hosted dances
on a regular basis as well as drama festivals, exhibitions, and every other type of function. Although it has not been a regular ballroom
in the classic sense, it is still a part of the showband era story. In 2004, the Athenaeum lost it fire license and closed. Recently, it has been
refurbished and reopened, starting a new era of entertainment for the town. (3 photos below)
