An Taisce has assembled for the fifth time what it determines to be the country’s Top 10 Most-at-Risk Buildings.
The only building in Connaught listed is Castle MacGarret, Claremorris, county Mayo
An Taisce say they are all buildings of importance, both intrinsically and to the heritage of their local areas; buildings that lie vacant and are in such a state of disrepair that they may be dangerous or have no identifiable new use. These buildings could be lost to future generations unless direct action is now taken to preserve them.
The ‘Top 10 Most-at-Risk’ list is compiled and updated by An Taisce annually.
In alphabetical order, the ten buildings deemed most at risk in 2021 are:
Aldborough House, Dublin
Bishop's Palace, Raphoe, Donegal
Canal Hotel, Robertstown, Kildare
Castle MacGarret, Claremorris, Mayo
Castle Saunderson, Cavan
Charter School, Monasterevin, Kildare
Debtor's Prison, Green Street, Dublin
Donaghy's Mill, Drogheda, Louth
Knocklofty House, outside Clonmel, Tipperary
