€230,000 has been secured four heritage projects in county Sligo under the 2022 Community Monuments Fund.
The projects are:
Moygara Castle, Gorteen €85,000,
Easkey Abbey, €85,000,
Green Fort, Sligo, €30,000
€30,000 for St Fechin Church, Ballisodare.
Minister of State Frank Feighin says the monies will enable conservation works to be carried out on monuments which are deemed to be significant and in need of urgent support, encouraging access to monuments and improve their presentation and also to build resilience in monuments to enable them to withstand the effects of climate change.
He says the funding will help owners and custodians of archaeological monuments to safeguard them into the future for the benefit of communities and the public.
