Kildare County Council in conjunction with the National Monuments Service and the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage are inviting applications for the Community Monuments Fund 2022. The grant scheme offers funding for the conservation, maintenance, protection and presentation of archaeological monuments.

  • Stream 2: for the development of Conservation Management Plans/Reports aimed at identifying measures for the conservation of archaeological monuments and improving public access
