The vision of the Irish Georgian Society is to conserve, protect and foster a keen interest and a respect for Ireland’s architectural heritage and decorative arts. These aims are achieved through its scholarly and conservation education programmes, through its support of conservation projects and planning issues, and vitally, through its members and their activities.

The Irish Georgian Society is inviting applications to its Conservation Grants Programme 2019. The Irish Georgian Society has fundraised a total of €50,000 and grants will be awarded with priority given to protected structures and recorded monuments of significant architectural merit.

The Irish Georgian Society’s Conservation Grants Programme is generously funded by IGS London. Over the last five years, the Society has supported over thirty significant conservation projects from around the country, that have included works to country houses and castles, thatched cottages and historic townhouses, architectural follies, and churches.

Some projects awarded grants in 2018 include: Abbeyleix Old Church, Abbeyleix Demesne, Co. Laois; Saunderscourt Gate Lodges, Co Wexford; Ardrahan Church, Co. Galway; and 18 Ormond Quay, Dublin 1.

Application forms must be submitted by 5pm on Monday 20th March 2019 and can be downloaded here. Decisions on the allocation of grants will be made by early May at which time applicants will be informed.
