Some of Donegal’s best-known heritage sites will undergo upgrade works this year under new grant allocations announced today.
€72,000 has been allocated to eleven Donegal built heritage projects under this year’s Built Heritage Investment Scheme.
The funding will support owners and custodians of historic and protected structures to safeguard and maintain their properties and will also provide a welcome boost to local construction and heritage trades by facilitating works.
