This year, a SPAB Ireland Working Party will take place at Macreary, Co. Tipperary. The group of structures consist of a historic farmhouse and series of associated outbuildings and boundary walls, on a small farm holding in south-east Tipperary, which most likely has its origins in the late 18th century. It is not a Protected Structure but it is of particular vernacular interest. The holding has stood vacant for a significant period of time and now under new ownership it is in need of significant intervention to prevent further deterioration and loss of the remaining structures.
The working party will provide a unique opportunity for building professionals, craftspeople, general builders, students, homeowners, and experienced enthusiasts alike to learn more about traditional conservation building skills through hands-on experience.
