Since the year 2000, the Irish Georgian Society has supported c. 180 projects through its Conservation Grants Programme. With in excess of €1.6m in grants awarded during this time, the Society has assisted conservation works to ‘structures of significant architectural merit’ throughout Ireland, ranging from country and town houses, to churches, follies and garden buildings. The initiative is an essential and ongoing part of the Society’s works and is made possible through funding from IGS London, IGS Inc (USA) and sums raised in Ireland. Small grants have assisted with the repair of countless roofs, windows and gutters, and enabled the preparation of conservation plans that can provide essential road maps in the restoration of historic buildings. Details of many of the projects assisted by the IGS can be found below.
