10 Fingal projects awarded funding under heritage investment scheme

Numerous heritage projects in Fingal have been granted funding under the Built Heritage Investment Scheme (BHIS) 2021.

Announced by Minister for Housing, Heritage and Local Government Darragh O’Brien, €72,000 will be allocated across 10 repair projects in the county.

The BHIS is one of two built heritage funding schemes run by the department in association with the 31 local authorities.

Owners of heritage structures can apply for a grant up to €15,000 to help undertake conservation works on the site.

Some of the structures that were allocated funding include Corduff House, Kenure Church, Knockmaroon Lodge, Laurel Mount, Rogerstown Pier and Church of Assumption, Malahide.

Speaking on the annoucement, Minister O’Brien said: “Here in Fingal we will see a range of projects supported by this investment.

“From external joinery repairs to Laurel Mount in Borranstown to window glass conservation in Kenure Church of Ireland Church in Rush, this funding will not only help to safeguard our rich built heritage but it will also have a knock-on economic benefit by generating jobs, providing further employment for heritage contractors and other skilled crafts and tradespeople.

“The success of the Built Heritage Investment Scheme is testament to the close working relationship between my department and local authorities including Fingal County Council.

“It’s very welcome to see local authorities such as Fingal placing such a strong emphasis on their rich built heritage,” he said.
