Irish Georgian Society Conservation Grants Programme 2018

The Irish Georgian Society is inviting applications to our 2018 Conservation Grants Programme. Now in its fifth year, the grants programme provides financial support for works to structures of significant architectural merit.

A total of €50,000 is available and grants will be awarded with priority given to protected structures and recorded monuments of significant architectural merit. Structures of all periods are eligible but priority will be given to older buildings on the basis of rarity and potential fragility relating to age.

The Irish Georgian Society’s Conservation Grants Programme is supported by Irish Georgian Society London and Irish Georgian Society U.S. Chapters through funds raised from its activities and members’ generous bequests. The programme aims to provide financial assistance for conservation works to structures of significant architectural merit. Over the last four years, the Society has supported over forty significant conservation projects from around the country, that have included works to country houses and castles, thatched cottages and historic townhouses, architectural follies, and churches.

Some projects awarded grants in 2017 include the O’Brien Column, Liscannor, Co. Clare, Stradbally Hall, Co. Laois, Town Hall, Mountmellick, Co. Laois, St Johns Church, Ballycastle, Co. Mayo and Old Parochial House, Monkstown, Co. Cork

Application forms must be submitted by 5.00pm on Friday 23rd February 2018 and can be downloaded from igsconservationgrants@gmail.com
