The Minister has been visiting projects in Cork that have been funded by her department’s Rural Regeneration and Development Fund to see what communities are doing in cooperation with local authorities supported by her department funding.

Rev Kingsley Sutton says:

I thank minister Heather Humphreys for taking time within her busy schedule to prioritise a visit to see inside the unique Church of the Ascension in Timoleague. Phase 1 of a substantial conservation project has now been completed and the conservation team is delighted with the immense interest that is being generated around this West Cork Hidden Gem.
