In bringing the building back to its original character, the conservation and renovation work will preserve the building for future generations and add to the heritage product in South and East Cork.”

With a budget of €96 million for 2012, it is critically important that communities continue to come up with ideas that will reinvigorate their localities and avail of the resources available to develop all aspects of their communities into the future.
