Thurles castle to be renovated

Permission has been granted for the renovation of Killahara Castle near Thurles, Co Tipperary by North Tipperary County Council

Local men Patrick Noel Ryan and Tom O'Neill plan to renovate the castle near Dovea and to reinstate the centuries-old property as a private residence.

The renovation of the recorded structure will mainly comprise the refurbishment of the existing Victorian adapted interior with the installation of flooring and new quarry slated roof, timber fenestration and essential conservation maintenance works to structure and fabric.

A new single-storey detached utility room and proposed new entrance, are also part of the plan.
