The Hartigan Centre is named after the priest Patrick Hartigan who published poems under the name of John O'Brien. (Around the Boree Log, Said Hanrahan, Come Sing Australian Songs To Me, and others).
It is attached to the Yass Catholic Church and primary school. There are a number of rooms for workshops and concerts and sessions and the adjacent Lovat Chapel is ideal as the weekend dance venue.
The two main rooms used for workshopd, sessions and concerts are the Banjo Paterson Room and the John O'Brien Room identified by the posters on the doors.
