Saint Peter's Church

  • Construction Projects - Ireland

Project Brief

Built in 1815 St. Peters Church is a well-appointed modest-scale rural church conforming to the standard arrangement of nave and tower identified as a hallmark of churches sponsored by the Board of First Fruits (fl. c.1711-1833). 

This project was a conservation project that included the following scope of works: 

- The rain water goods were leaking and in a bad state of repairs, which were also damaging the interior walls.

- The gutters could not be removed without disruption to the slates that were in perfect condition as the gutter was plastered in place.

- Built scaffold around building

- Cleaned down the gutters and downpipes

- Primed and painted them

- Fitted a liner inside the gutter to create a seamless gutter.

- Carried out repairs to lattice windows.
