In 2021 County Mayo Heritage Officer, Deirdre Cunningham, was successful in using funding from Community Monuments Fund to prepare a Conservation Management Plan for Kilgeever Church and Graveyard. This plan included a report on works to conserve the church structure.

In a very poor state, the final existing gable tethers precariously and we are delighted to see that conservation works have now commenced. Thanks to funds of €48,672 secured under the Community Monuments Fund in 2022,  the scaffolding has been erected and we fully support any repairs that will be made to this protected heritage structure.

Thanks to Mayo County Heritage Officer and all the agencies and departments that work together to make these important improvements to our built heritage.
