Lessons learned in Listowel to inform new historic town initiative

Lessons learned from a pilot scheme in Listowel will help inform a new historic town initiative.

The Heritage Council has launched an Historic Towns Initiative aimed at supporting regeneration.

The initiative is a joint undertaking by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and the Heritage Council and will make €1 million available to towns to assist in their regeneration.


Lessons learned from the HTI pilot, which operated in Listowel, Westport and Youghal have been used to develop a nationwide programme for 2018.
