Financial Assistance for Architectural Heritage

Architectural Heritage Funding - Turlough Lodge

Financial assistance is provided to assist with the conservation and restoration of historic properties through schemes administered by the Architectural Conservation Office on behalf of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage

Further to the launch of the Built Heritage Investment Scheme and the Historic Structures Fund for 2022 by Malcolm Noonan TD, Minister of State for Heritage and Electoral Reform at the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage,Mayo County Council now invite applications. Both schemes will assist small-scale, labour-intensive projects and larger-scale projects to repair and conserve our historic built environment. The projects will also provide significant support to local employment in conservation, traditional skills and construction.

The Built Heritage Investment Scheme (BHIS) maintenance stream has also been retained.
