The Heritage Council have announced €299,000 for conservation work and interpretation initiatives under the Irish Walled Towns Network. This funding allows the valuable work of protecting, preserving and promoting the history and heritage of Ireland’s walled towns to continue.

Among the Irish Walled Towns Network Capital/Conservation Grant Scheme Projects is conservation work at Athenry, Athlone, Kilkenny, Wexford, Fethard and Kells and the Interpretation and Event Grant Scheme will be funding virtual festivals, interpretation panels, an audio guide and much more. In their own ways, all of these projects contribute to making town heritage more accessible and enjoyable.

We wish all the successful applicants all the best with their projects!
