This was built as a Chamber of Commerce in 1805.
Three O'Maras were Mayors here:
It ceased to be the Town Hall in 1990.
The Old Town Hall was restored by Richard Humphreys in 1992.
It was occupied for a time by the Mid West Business Institute (now Griffith College Limerick).
Called the Old Town Hall Centre.
It was bought for a planned shopping centre re-development called "The Opera Centre".
The re-development never happened.
The Town Hall is now vacant, boarded up, awaiting re-development.
