Just over €250,000 to preserve built heritage across Shannonside counties

Historical buildings and structures across the Shannonside region are being allocated just over a quarter of a million euro in total under two schemes overseen by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

The funds support the owners and custodians of protected structures in every county across the country in carrying out hundreds of small scale, labour intensive projects to repair and conserve Ireland’s historic built environment.
