I support this work and cannot understand why nothing has been done to preserve the workhouses as part of our heritage and as a tourist attraction for the many people who come to trace their roots in Ireland. My grandfather was the Master of a Workhouse for a few years near the end of them and my mother has many stories of it. It is essential that we preserve this heritage.
Please contact me if you would like info/support and I would be willing to assist this group – I have a huge interest in this area.
