When an extension was built onto what was the then yard and sheds of the Pillar House in 1971 it was called “The Lounge”, it immediately became the in place for the young crowd and it would be great to have one euro for every great memory that’s been recalled of days and nights there. Live music was a focal point then as now and band names such as Pincín, Paschal & The Shannon Breeze, Skillet Pot, Terry Benson and Ballinasloe’s own Vienna who played during the ’70s and early ’80s will evoke lots of memories
In recent years it has become known as simply “Down the Back”. From The Lounge days right through to today “Down the Back” has been the meeting for Ballinasloe’s young and trendies.
