Announcements for Wicklow under Built Heritage Investment Scheme

Date: 7 March 2022

Deputy Steven Matthews has welcomed the €96,000 awarded to County Wicklow under the Built Heritage Investment Scheme, 2022 for 11 projects across the county, announced by his Green Party colleague – Minister Malcolm Noonan. Discussing the Funding, Deputy Matthews said:

This funding is a vital aspect of maintaining our built heritage across the county. Much of the funding announced today will go to specialist tradespeople who have the expertise required to carry out the work while maintaining the historic nature of these locations. As a society, and in Wicklow in particular, we have inherited some truly remarkable built heritage and this funding will allow for the necessary conservation works to help safeguard it for future generations.

Some of the 11 projects announced for Wicklow included the much-needed repair of windowsills in Wicklow Gaol, funding to repair the windows in St. Saviour’s Church in Rathdrum and repairs to the front porch in St. Kevin’s church in Laragh.

This funding is part of multi annual funding plans regarding the preservation of our heritage under – Heritage Ireland 2030. If there are any local groups involved with the preservation of any period buildings in Wicklow, I would encourage them to get in touch with me directly as they may be in a position to support an application for future rounds of funding, concluded, Deputy Matthews.
