Plan for Swords Castle

development

THIS is the planned new look for Swords Castle and its surrounds. Fingal County Council has begun an extensive series of renovations on the castle following a report last year that the building posed safety concerns for visitors.

A design team has been appointed for the reconstruction of the vault over the entrance to the historic castle. Fingal plans to spend €80,000 before the end of 2016 on the project.

Meanwhile, the council has commissioned a project to create a master plan for the area surrounding the castle which will become the town's Cultural Quarter. Plans for the town include a new green space outside the castle and a new library and civic centre beside County Hall.
