Hundreds of people have shared their fond memories of Clubland nightclub Cookstown, as a celebration disco was held in the popular venue at the weekend.

However, a spokesperson for Clubland has said they have not shut their doors and will continue to host various functions each month, including the teenage discos.

There are no immediate plans at this stage, however, to revive the regular Saturday night discos.

Billed as the ‘Final Clubland’ held as part of a charity fundraiser, the story on the Mail website attracted thousands of readers.
