Funding to develop Bruree museum and heritage centre 

The DeValera Museum and Heritage Centre in Bruree

€50,000 has been allocated from the Town and Village Renewal Scheme’s project development fund to develop a masterplan for the DeValera Museum and Bruree Heritage Centre.

The Bruree scheme is one of 19 projects to share in a €850,000 fund to scope out future projects and ensure they are advanced to a shovel-ready stage. A more comprehensive funding application can then be made, and quality projects progressed to construction.

Limerick Fine Gael Senator Maria Byrne said that this latest round of funding builds on the €1 million allocated to Limerick last week under the main Town and Village Renewal Scheme, and is also designed to complement the work of the Towns Centre First Strategy.

“This places particular emphasis on planning and design for more substantial projects to support remote working, in addition to tackling vacancy and dereliction in towns and enhancing town centre living.

“Since the introduction of the Town and Village Renewal Scheme by Fine Gael in 2016, almost €112 million has been approved for more than 1,400 projects across the country.

“It has supported a range of activities, from improving the public realm and tourism amenities, to job creation initiatives such as the development of enterprise hubs and remote working facilities,” Senator Byrne explained.
