Three south Wexford attractions of community historical and heritage are recognised in the latest round of funding under the Community Monument Fund and the rejoicing is palpable at Our Lady’s Island, protecting the double bell tower on the historic chapel gable, Barntown Castle, and St. Mary’s Church on Bannow Island.

Located on the Norman Way Heritage route, they will share €40,000 for conservation, maintenance, protection, and promotion.

The breakdown of the funding is as follows:

St. Mary’s Church in Bannow will receive €18,756.

Our Lady’s Island will receive €12,467.

Barntown Castle will receive €8,364.
