There was only one thing that the parish was now lacking, at that was somewhere to hold social events. Dances and other events had been held in the upstairs room of the Eagle and Crown, but Father McGonagle felt that something better was needed.

So in 1983 he had a Church Hall built next to the presbytery, behind the Church. The estimated cost for the hall was about £60,000, in the event the hall cost around £90,000.

In 1982 Father Greenwood left and Father William Fitzgerald arrived as curate.
