Ghostly goings on in Crossabeg centre as Chamber of Horrors makes a frightful return

Amy Lewis

Tom Bermingham and other members of the Crossabeg community have one main aim this October: to frighten the life out of people.

In an effort to send chills down the spine of even the bravest souls, Tom and the Crossabeg Community Development Committee will bring their Chamber of Horrors back to the village for two spooktacular nights. Set in the already eerie rooms of the old Crossabeg community centre, it certainly is not for the faint-hearted!

'We have fitted out the whole interior and corridors with scary stuff,' said Tom. 'People will go through a series of chambers and be met by lots of ghosts and spooky things. There is even an enchanted forest with trees.'

Organisers are promising something 'bigger and better' than last year's event, which drew crowds from across the county. With the event, they hope to raise funds to go towards the construction of a new community centre. They also plan to bring fun to the village.

'It's a big community event,' explained Tom. 'All of us from the committee will be dressing up in costume for it. We hope to attract people from a wider area.'

The Chamber of Horrors will open its doors on October 30 and 31 from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. and 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. respectively. Tickets will cost €5 for adults €3 for under 13s, with family rates available.
