“It includes €12,000 in repairs for the Conwal Parish Church; €2,500 for Fort Stewart, Killydonnell, Ramelton; €10,000 for Whitehill House, Gartan; and €10,000 for Aghnagaddy House, Ramelton.

“The allocation announced today will be accompanied by private funding. The local projects will support jobs in the conservation and construction sectors locally.
They will help to preserve our local heritage and promote Letterkenny’s physical infrastructure and attractiveness as a tourist location,” Galligan added.
