Ten projects across Clare are set to benefit from funding under the Built Heritage Investment Scheme.

A total of €4m in funding will be shared by 512 projects across 31 local authorities including 10 in Clare.

The announcement follows the launch last week by Minister of State for Heritage and Electoral Reform, Malcolm Noonan  of ‘Heritage Ireland 2030, a new national heritage plan which seeks to strengthen protection for our heritage in all its forms and provide supports to those responsible for its care.
