It is with some sadness I learned today of another great little club that has permanently closed its doors for the last time.
The end of an era, as ‘The Columba Club’ on Carlowrie Avenue, Coatshill closed for the final time last night, Sunday 8th October 2017.
The club closed due to unaffordable repairs needed and sadly joins other recent buildings to be sold off to developers. Rumours at the club suggest houses may be built on this land in the near future.
Robert Wishart commented, “Andy McDade and I have performed every Wednesday at the Columba Club for over fourteen years and we would like to thank the committee, bar staff and most of all the people who have attended every week, year in year out supporting us.”
The story of The Columba Club and its predecessor, Knights of St Columba is scheduled to be told here in December.
