Killarney House

RTE News reported this week that more than euro 7 million is to be spent restoring Killarney House and this should be welcomed by all.  This was the historic home of the Earls of Kenmare.  The house and gardens were gifted to the nation in 1998 by the American philanthropist, John McShain in the hope that the state would preserve this historic gem for all to enjoy.  Sadly, since 1998, the house has been left to decay.  The new government is to be commended for this encouraging announcement coming just days before the announcement that Doneraile Court may also receive a cash injection.
