Work begins to prepare for the visit of Fethard castle


WORKS have started to restore the historic Fethard Castle with a view to allowing visitors to access the ground floor in a few years.

Around € 125,000 is spent to re-stabilize the castle, which dates from the 15th century.

A Community Monuments Fund grant of € 70,000 has been awarded for stabilization and conservation work on the castle and Wexford County Council will spend around € 55,000 on the project. Work has started on the site and will end at the end of October.
