The aim of this scheme is to conserve historic thatched roofs to make sure that the buildings are usable and remain part of the cultural landscape of Ireland. The Heritage Council will support projects that apply good practice in thatch conservation, as set out in the document ‘Thatch: a guide to the repair of thatched roofs’ (2015)*. As a result, we may need to you to make modifications to the proposed works or repairs (specification) after we inspect the building.
You may apply for grants via the Heritage Council online application system will be open on March 1st 2017. Closing date is 24th March 2017 at 5pm .
