His spooky displays have been drawing crowds for years.
But Passage West Halloween fanatic Francis McEveney is hoping to take the spooky fun even further for 2023 when Halloween Hell, a walk-through experience, opens in the town this Friday.
The annual event has been raising funds for Marymount since 2020, attracting huge crowds and generous donations.
This year the group of volunteers behind the event hope their purpose-built walkthrough and cast of scary characters in various scenes will raise over €10,000 for the charity.
But before you dive in, be warned; it’s not for the faint-hearted; for those who find the whole thing a little overwhelming, there is an escape exit halfway through and the event has been deemed too scary for smallies under age eight.
“This is my second year working on this event and this year we promise More of everything. More screams, more fun, and most importantly more funds raised for Marymount.” said volunteer, Annabel.
“It’s a fantastic event and is as fun backstage for our volunteers as it is for all of our visitors on the night.”
Halloween Hell opens this Friday, October 27th until October 29th at the Old Star of the Sea School, Passage West, with a sensory session on October 30th from 5pm-7pm.
Tickets are €10 per adult, €5 per child and €20 for a family of four at the door.
