Kilbarron Castle Conservation Group was formed in October 2014 to endeavour to conserve the ruins and to raise the awareness in the local community and wider world of the historical importance of the Castle . In 2021 we became aware of the parlous nature of the historic old church in Kilbarron so the Group made the decision to include the old church site in our programme.
So we are now the Kilbarron Castle and Church Conservation Group.
The committee has twelve members across a broad spectrum of skills who have carried out community work and projects such as the Creevy & District Community Development Co-Operative Society, and the enormously popular Mícheál Ó Cléirigh Summer School.
This is a voluntary group and welcome any help and expertise to further our aims. If you think you can help then please Contact us.
Or you can help by contributing to fund our work, see our Adopt-A-Stone appeal.

We plan to conserve the ruins from further deterioration by following best practice as defined by the National Monument Service and the Heritage Council.
To gain a better sense of the archaeology and the environment of this important site, our group have, with support from The Heritage Council, successfully commissioned and completed a Conservation Report and a Topographical Report . Group along with an Ecology Report undertaken by group members .
