The Ulster Bank branch in Edgeworthstown
Ten Longford projects will benefit from €115,000 in funding allocated under this year’s Historic Structures Fund (HSF) and Built Heritage Investment Scheme (BHIS).
In total, more than €4.3m in funding was announced by Minister for Culture, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht, Josepha Madigan TD for 449 projects across the country.
This funding will support the owners and custodians of historic and protected structures as they carry out hundreds of small-scale, labour-intensive projects to repair and safeguard our built heritage.
The announcement follows the Government’s recent publication of its Roadmap for Reopening Society & Business to ease the Covid-19 restrictions.
