Advice Series for Owners of Traditionally Built Buildings
In August 2007, the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government launched a new advice series for owners of traditionally built buildings.
The Advice Series will continue with further publications. A guide to the repair of thatched roofs is currently in preparation in collaboration with Fingal County Council. Amoung the topics to be addressed in future publications are the repair of slate roofs, the repair of historic ironwork and the care of decorative finishes.
The publications in this series are available to download below.
