THE Heritage Council has awarded €200,000 to Ramelton as part of a major regeneration initiative.
The money has been awarded under the Historic Towns Initiative which last year put €200,000 towards the redevelopment of Letterkenny’s Church Lane.
The latest award will be backed up with €50,000 from Donegal County Council as well as private investment by property owners.
County Donegal’s Heritage Officer, Joseph Gallagher, said, “Ramelton has a very rich history and this is manifest in, and communicated by, its historic buildings. We hope that the Historic Towns Initiative in Ramelton this year and the award-winning initiative on Church Lane, Letterkenny, last year will inspire other heritage-led initiatives in towns and villages elsewhere in the county.”
