Congratulation to the Probation office, supported by KKB and Kilkenny Co Co for the wonderful re-presentation of all three of our historic wells. There has been cleaning , painting, weeding, trimming undertaken and some planting also put in place. Further planting will need to await winter rains. A traditional whitewash was used giving a brilliant white finish.
There was a large gathering to review progress on the conservation work being undertaken at St Mary’s Church Graveyard. The Open Day was organised to give an opportunity to meet with the stonemasons, conservation specialists and archaeologists working on the project.
There will be a seminar on the overall conservation and restoration project at St Mary’s on the 13th April. For further information click here for link.
