Clare County Development Plan 2017 - 2023: Volume 4: Record of Protected Structures

23 January 2017

These structures play an integral part in the life of County Clare and the daily lives of its citizens.
These structures are often inhabited or used as places of work, commerce, worship, education, recreation, and contribute positively to the character our towns, villages and countryside.
Accordingly, this Record of Protected Structures has been prepared for the Clare County Development Plan 2017-2023. This document identifies and describes the details of all existing Protected Structures in the County, including those from former Ennis Town Council and Kilrush
Town Council functional areas.
In addition, objectives for the protection of such structures are included in the Volume 1 Written Statement of the Clare County Development Plan 2017-2023.

A protected structure is a building or other feature, (such as a bridge, memorial or castle), which, in the opinion of Clare County Council, is of such special architectural, artistic, archaeological, cultural, social, scientific or technical interest that it should be afforded legal protection so that its intrinsic value can be appreciated by future generations. Such structures can range from the humblest thatched cottage to the largest country house.
