La Scala

La Scala

La Scala in Crosshaven is an arcade that’s been in the town for years. It probably hasn’t been called that name all that time, or owned by the same people all that time but I always remember there being an arcade there. Not sure if I’ve ever been in there though. Maybe a long time ago!

The Doneraile Photowalk is on next Sunday at 3pm. Everyone’s welcome! If you’re wondering about where to meet up, or worried that you’ll be late, leave a comment here and I’ll email you my phone number. The park is quite big and it would probably be quite easy to wander around without meeting anyone else!

Worried, yes.
but I’ve got access to a GPS system for the day, so you could determine the GPS coordinates (form the online map of your choosing) and post them up here?

i was thrilled to see this photo of LaScala. i am in New Jersey USA, and lived in Crosshaven in the mid 70s. i always loved hanging around the arcade and the Merries when they were open. As best as i can recall they were only open in the warmer months.

i have googled Crosshaven in the past and been dissapointed in the lack of current local info i was able to find. if you know of websites, local, Schoil Bride, or online newsletters, please forward. I would also love to see other photos of all areas of crosshaven, myrtleville, fountainstown, and especially Graball, as that was where we lived. Thanks for the great photo.


great photo…remember the old merries 60s 70s.. fond would be packed..stayed there on hols many times with my late parents..always remember that woman in the merries spinning the wheel “last few tickets, last few tickets”
