THE end of an era is dawning in Ballynakelly as the Working Men's Club has been put up for sale.

For over 40 years the club has served the small rural community there, but it will close its doors after any sale is made.

The club on the Coash Road is currently on the market with a guide price of £79,950.

It is being marketed by Tom Henry & Co as a "landmark premises / development opportunity".

Prior to being used as a social gathering point, the building was used as a primary school, having first opened its doors in 1920.

After the school closed, it was converted for use as a working men's club, and has been used in that capacity since the 1970s.

However, due to declining business, the owners of the building, understood to be the trustees of the club, have put the building up for sale.

The club is now open just three nights a week - Thursday, Friday and Saturday - although it is available for extra bookings upon request.

Ballynakelly Darts League operates out of the club, though they will be able to complete their league season, which will close in early April.

The building is situated on a 3/4 acre site and, according to the marketers of the property, boasts "good road frontage to the Coash Road and clear boundaries with fencing or mature hedging".

Tom Henry & Co have described the property as presenting "a superb opportunity as a professional practice, redevelopment opportunity or brownfield site (subject to planning permission)."
