The Curraghaun Heritage Site

A Skehana & District Restoration Project

Gerry Costello

The grave site is completely overgrown by wild shrubbery and briers. The Celtic Cross is barely visible on the right of the picture and is covered in ivy and moss. The walls are completely covered and arrested by weeds, nettles, briers and undergrowth that needs to be carefully removed and tamed. A long and difficult restoration project is needed to save the site for future generations to appreciate and to gain access to going forward into the future.

The entire enclosure is overgrown and impossible to enter through the gate way entrance. Nature has reclaimed this unkempt and derelict site as is normal in such situations. It is only a matter of another few years before this site would be completely destroyed by nature and obliterated forever from the landscape.

After much careful work and restoration the site has been returned to its original condition. It was felt by the group that as much as possible that the finished work be kept to the standard of the time it was first constructed, so careful and complementary and discrete restoration was carried out and completed. The site is now preserved for future generations to visit, view, cherish and keep safe for further generations to continue the good work of heritage preservation.
