The funding will be distributed by the local authority under its Architectural Conservation Grants Scheme, which supports the repair and conservation of buildings on the Record of Protected Structures.

According to Minister Killeen, "The conservation of our historic buildings makes our towns and villages more attractive to tourists and locals alike and can often act as a catalyst for further heritage projects in an area, as it enhances local awareness in our built heritage."

"I am very happy to announce this funding for Clare County Council, an increase of over 20% on last year’s allocation. This allocation will support the conservation of significant buildings all around County Clare", added the Minister.
