Conserving Athlone Town Wall

Melanie McQuade
Westmeath Heritage Office and IWTN

This project will describe the town wall in Athlone, of which only a few standing sections remain. In 2020 conservation works will be undertaken on a section of the town wall. The proposed works will commence after National Heritage Week, and thus this National Heritage Week project aims to raise awareness of the significance of the town wall, of the locations of surviving stretches of the wall and to explore the skills to be employed in conserving a section of the wall at Court Devenish/Railway View.
