The Sligo Leitrim Islamic Society’s Cultural Centre was officially opened last week at Mail Coach Road, Sligo.
The new facility which is the first in the local area will be the focal point for the 1,000 people from the Muslim community in the Sligo and Leitrim region.
The centre contains a prayer hall, a library and it also hopes to include a separate education hall to promote educational activities for children.
The Islamic Cultural Centre was opened by Mayor of Sligo, Cllr Tom McSharry, who welcomed the opening of the community centre. Everyone from any ethnicity or religion is welcome to the centre.
Ramadan, a month of day time fasting observed by Muslims, will begin this week.
