Jigginstown Castle, Naas, restoration delay

Jigginstown Castle, Naas

Kildare County Council is being urged to allocate a portion of land to facilitate the development and possible opening of the historic Jigginstown Castle to the public.

Local historian and councillor Seamie Moore has asked KCC if it has provided land for an on-site workshop, car parking and a public information office.

He also wants to know what progress has been made by the Office of Public Works on restoring the castle this year.

A full restoration of the castle on the Newbridge side of Naas, was been ruled out by the Office of Public Works about three years ago.
