2.4 million for the restauration of the gardener´s cottage

Garinish Island GlengarriffA phantastic grant for Garinish Island: € 2.4 million for restoring the gardener´s cottage into a island museum to tell the story of the island and its occupants. This may be the time now to tell the story of the O´Sullivan-Garnish-family who lived on the island in 1910 for the very first time! Did you know? So let’s hope that not only the great byzantine marble tomb – which is now perfectly cleaned and sitting in the back of the casita – will get a worthy display in the near future. According to Harold Peto’s plans it was to be incorporated into the north facing wall of the never built mansion (you would have seen it climbing the slope after the many steps from the eastern gate of the walled garden).
