The Church of the Ascension in Timoleague is undergoing some major renovation works since 2020. Phase 1 was completed in Summer 2020, restoring and renewing the entire roof of the church. Phase 2 of the plan has been completed recently, resulting in the new, white colour of the church tower.
The Rev. Kingsley Sutton, Rector of Kilgariffe Union, has created a short video about the ongoing conservation project and explains why the church tower is now white.

The Rev. Kingsley Sutton, Rector of Kilgariffe Union, commented:
West Cork has many hidden gems, but this one is changing colour. Please share the good news of how Ireland’s Heritage is being conserved for future generations.
