The Paul Hogarth Company was commissioned by Kerry County Council to formulate the strategy.

The North Kerry town was chosen to be part of the Historic Towns Initiative pilot project in 2013.

Listowel is one of only three towns along with Westport and Youghal chosen to be part of the project.

Head of conservation with the Heritage Council, Ian Doyle, says  Westport was the ‘best in class’ example of how the project could successfully be run.

But he said Listowel had huge potential and the support of the community was vital for this.
