The Irish Georgian Society's Conservation Grants Scheme 2016 was announced yesterday at a small ceremony at the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, 63 Merrion Square, Dublin 2. In all, fourteen historic buildings successfully received a grant from the IGS.
In announcing the awards, Primrose Wilson, Chair of the Society’s Conservation Grants Committee, said "the Irish Georgian Society's grants programme plays an important role in helping to protect our built heritage as many of the grants provided are used for essential roof, gutter and window repairs. The maintenance and repair of these features is vital to prevent the decay of historic fabric through water ingress and the onset of damp, both of which can be disastrous in old buildings".
The total value of grants amounts to €56,500. Funded by the London Chapter of the Irish Georgian Society, these grants will help owners and guardians of architecturally important historic buildings to fund essential works which may not otherwise be possible.

The Irish Georgian Society is delighted to be participating in National Heritage Week 2016 with two free events at Agher Church, Co. Meath. The conservation of the Thomas Jervais window at Agher Church, was part funded through a grant from The Heritage Council under the Heritage Management Grant Scheme 2016.
At the Heritage Week open days, visitors will have the opportunity to view the window, and learn about the significance of this rare example of eighteenth-century Irish stained glass, which by then will have been fully restored and reinstated in Agher Church.
