Majestic Ballroom, Mallow, Co. Cork
In 1962 Donie Collins and Jack O'Rourke
announced the opening of a new ballroom in Mallow, Co. Cork.
The Majestic boasted a total floor space of 17,000 sq. ft, as well as a 10,000
sq yard car park for patrons. The band for the
opening night was Donie's band. Throughout its long history, the ballroom
featured all the top names in music as
well as other events. The ballroom finally closed in 1990 with Brendan Shine and
his band providing the entertainment.
In 1991, the ballroom was put up for sale (see below) but found no buyers,
remaining for sale for several years. We're not sure when,
but appears in the early 2000's the ballroom was demolished to make way for the
new Majestic Business Park. The photo from today
(below) bears no resemblance to the original hall
