The newly-appointed Minister for Arts, Heritage, and Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD will launch the Dysart-Enos Conservation Report next Tuesday (October 21) at 7.30pm at the Holy Trinity Church, Rock of Dunamase.

The report was commissioned by the Dysart-Enos Conservation Committee and carried out by Richard McLoughlin of Lotts Architecture and Urbanism Ltd. over the last nine months. The report covers the historical and conservational aspects of the structure and the measures that need to be taken to conserve the site and structure. It was funded by Laois Partnership.

The launch will take place at the Holy Trinity Church, Rock of Dunamase which was built to replace the original church at Dysart-Enos which was damaged beyond repair on ‘the night of the big wind’ in 1839. The Committee would like to thank the Portlaoise and Ballyfin Union and the local community for the use of the Church for what should prove to be a most interesting evening. Admission is by invitation only and light refreshments will be served.
