Granard Motte Heritage Park could open in 2022

It’s hoped that the new Granard Motte Heritage Park tourist attraction will open next year.

The multi-million euro project, announced initially in July 2019, is set to lodge a slightly amended planning application for the 15-acre site in the coming days with Longford County Council.

The design of the project is now ‘frozen’ with hopes that works on-site can begin later this year, with an opening date in 2022.

A public meeting is being online tonight at 7.30 to offer locals an update on the project which is expected to employ around 30 people when it is fully operational.

Bartle D’arcy, who is Heritage Centre manager in Granard, says it’s a very exciting time for everyone in north Longford:
