LEADER Heritage Funding

Grant Awarded:




Carrick on Shannon Heritage Group are dedicated to promoting cultural economic development, community heritage empowerment and tourism progression in Co Leitrim. They have a highly successful track record of undertaking and completing projects of significant heritage, economic and social value in the South Leitrim area. The group has received LEADER funding for the restoration of Saint George’s Church, the Famine Workhouse attic and Costello Memorial Chapel & Workhouse Attic Archive Room.

One of the projects which the group received funding for was the Costello Memorial Chapel which is believed to be one of the smallest chapels in Europe. It is a vital tourism attraction in Carrick-on-Shannon. In the late 1800’s Edward Costello, a town businessman built Costello Chapel as a memorial and burial crypt for his late wife. Edward himself was later entombed in the Chapel.The Irish “Taj Mahal” is the smallest chapel in Ireland, measuring only 16 ft x 12 ft. The Chapel underwent substantial restoration as a result of LEADER funding in late 2009 early 2010. Works included the Main Door Restoration roof repair, internal and external railings, conservation to internal stone ceilings and walls, glass enclosures and electric works, cleaning of stained glass and other restorative and conservation works.
