Funding for 11 Heritage Projects in Dublin South Announced

I welcome the €211,000 funding awarded to Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Council and the €123,000 awarded to South Dublin County Council as part of the Built Heritage Jobs Leverage Scheme 2014.

As a result of this funding a total of eleven projects across Dublin South will receive monies resulting in the conservation and restoration of protected building and historic structures in our locality. This funding will also generate and support significant employment in the conservation and construction industries and in specialist trades.

The following buildings will have roof repair work done: Enderley House, Mount Salem, St Thomas’s Estate, Tibradden House, the Roman Arch and the Whitechurch Cottages. Both the Rockbrook School and Mill will undergo masonry repair work.

I’m delighted that this Government is investing in our local community’s architectural heritage. These buildings offer a window into our collective past and their maintenance requires significant work and investment.
