Historic Offaly structures to be revived by funding boost

Historic Offaly structures to be revived by funding boost

Hundreds of old buildings and structures are set to be revived somewhat after the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht announced funding under the Historic Structures Fund and Built Heritage Investment Scheme 2020.

In total, more than €4.3m in funding has been announced for 449 projects across the country.

This funding will support the owners and custodians of historic and protected structures as they carry out hundreds of small-scale, labour-intensive projects to repair and safeguard our built heritage. 

Queries about the funding in Offaly can be made to Offaly County Council. See the Offaly sites receiving funding below:
