About the Conservation Grants Programme

The Irish Georgian Society's Conservation Grants Programme is supported through the fundraising efforts of its London Chapter. Over the last six years the Society has supported over fifty significant conservation projects around the country including works to country houses and castles, thatched cottages and historic townhouses, architectural follies, and churches.

In marking the launch of this year's Conservation Grants Programme, IGS Executive Director Donough Cahill remarked "Over the last six years the Irish Georgian Society has awarded €350,000 in small grants to support conservation projects around the country. Houses, churches, public buildings and architectural follies have all benefited from these grants with projects often overseen by heritage and community groups. Grants have been awarded for essential repair works to roofs, gutters and windows; for conservation works to decorative plasterwork and ironmongery; and for building appraisals to ensure best conservation practices are used. Through supporting the conservation of our heritage, the Irish Georgian Society's grants scheme seeks to benefit everyone through enhancing the built environment of our cities, towns and rural areas."
