Kilkenny's St Mary’s 18th century Almshouses ('poor house') Restoration

Email me more information on this:

Project Description

Renovate and restore two 18th century almshouses to provide a support function to the Medieval Mile Museum.

Established by Rev. Peter Roe, entry was open to “All poor persons, resident in the city of Kilkenny who are desirous to have the Scriptures read for them”. These fine stone buildings are of great architectural significance and ideally placed to support the work of the museum. Their full assessment and restoration would create spaces for educational workshops, temporary exhibitions and vital administrative functions.
