Work completed on East wall of Kilbarron Church

We’re pleased to report that the conservation work on the east wall of the church is completed. The ivy that was putting the wall out of shape has been removed and all the stonework reset and repointed using recommended lime mortar mix.

Our thanks to the stonemason Michael McGroarty who carried out the work and to Mary Roper, the landowner, who gave permission to carry out the conservation work on her property. Lastly to the hard-working committee and especially to the Heritage Council who part funded the project.
