Haulbowline Theatre Group brings “Out of Order” by Ray Cooney to Cobh Community Centre for a limited run of 11th – 14th of August 2018 inclusive.
Tickets now on sale.

Haulbowline Theatre Group is delighted to bring the hilarious farce “Out of Order” by Ray Cooney to Cobh Community Centre for its main summer production.

When Richard Willey, a Government Junior Minister, plans to spend the evening with one of the Opposition’s typists, Jane Worthington, things go disastrously wrong!

It starts with the discovery of a body trapped in the hotel’s only unreliable sash window. Calling on his male secretary to help with his lies and deception, things go from bad to worse. There is even more confusion with the arrival of Jane’s distraught young husband, an unscrupulous waiter, a frustrated hotel manager and Richard’s wife!

Audiences which have previously seen farces by Cooney performed by the group will know that a night of mad antics and laughter is assured!

Cobh Community Centre will be the venue for this side-splitting production from Saturday 11th – Tuesday 14th of August 2018 inclusive. Curtain-up is at 8pm nightly.

Tickets are priced at just €12 and are available now from:
Gibbs Chemist, Cobh
Cobh CarePlus Pharmacy
Or By Phone: 086 33 88 942

Cobh Community Centre give generous donation to St. Vincent De Paul




The cheque of €500 was presented to St. Vincent de Paul on Tuesday evening at the Community Centre. It was part of the proceeds from the Centre’s ‘Christmas Variety Concert’. John Coleman, Chairman of the Cobh Community Centre, thanked all the groups that performed at the concert last December, including nearby colleges St. Mary’s National School, Bunscoil Rinn an Chabhlaigh and Scoil Iosaef. Members of the Fundraising Committee – Manager, Gwen O’Halloran, Majella Smith, Martin O’Leary and Catherine Jefferson – also expressed their appreciation for the spirited and uplifting performances that were given last December by the Children’s Theatre, the Cope Foundation Day Unit, Pop & Rock and the Carrigtwohill Gospel Choir. Thanking the Cobh Community Centre, Liz O’Driscoll and Aine O’Regan from St. Vincent de Paul said, “Our charity receives much focus around Christmas time, which is a great thing, but our work is ongoing, year-round. Therefore, donations at this time of year are especially important to us.”

The Chairman used the presentation of the cheque to St. Vincent de Paul to announce ambitious plans to increase the usage of the Centre’s many and varied facilities. John noted, “Cobh Community Centre has great potential for hosting a variety of both community and commercial activities as well as training sessions. We offer convenience plus first-class facilities. That’s a package that’s hard to top! We are also constantly expanding and upgrading our classes and events. So, there is something here for everyone in the Cobh community…the Centre literally does what it says on the tin!”
