3D MODELS of the Durrow High Cross attracted great interest during a recent Irish heritage promotion in the German city of Regensburg, Offaly Heritage Officer Amanda Pedlow told the April meeting of Tullamore Town Council.

Outlining the Draft Heritage Plan for Offaly, she referred to conservation projects in Tihilly, Rahan and Lynally, as well as a project on stained glass windows in local churches.

Ms Pedlow referred to the recent opening of the Clara Bog Visitor Centre and the setting up of an umbrella body for local Tidy Towns committees.

Next month will see an ‘Engage with Architecture’ project in Tullamore’s Main Street, she added. Paying tribute to local historians and archaeologists such as Michael Byrne, John Feehan and Caimin O’Brien, she said that the coming year would see publication of further books on the county’s heritage.

Cllr Sinead Dooley said that Ms Pedlow’s enthusiasm was ‘infectious’ and she was particularly impressed by an artist’s impression of Sragh Castle when it was in use. In reply to Cllr Tommy McKeigue, Mr Declan Kirrane, Director of Services, said that the planning permission for a proposed development at the Durrow site would run out this year, and the Council was engaging with various parties to ensure it came to fruition.
