The Conservation and Management Plan for the Town Walls of Kells was commissioned by Meath County Council, with funding provided by the Heritage Council through the Irish Walled Towns Network. Prepared by 7L Architects in collaboration with Research + Dig, the purpose of the plan is to assess the history, cultural significance and current condition of the walled town – in terms of its known standing remains, buried archaeology, layout and associated buildings. It assesses the threats to its significance; outlines a conservation strategy and makes recommendations for enhancement, improved management and interpretation.
