Conservation Works Completed On Westmeath Landmark

The building was constructed in 1867 for Lord Greville.

Conservation works on the Market House in Mullingar has been completed.

Upgrades were being carried to the iconic clock tower - dating back to 1867 - which had become badly weathered over the years.

The timber louvers and leadwork have been replaced, and reinforced with a steel frame.

The corroded weathervane has also been restored, the clock cleaned, and a light installed on the clock face.

Westmeath County Council says the works will help to preserve the landmark building for generations to come.
