Wonderful News for Strokestown Park and The national Famine Museum
Fáilte Ireland announces investment of €3.9million for
The National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park
The Fáilte Ireland investment of €3.9million in the National Famine Museum comes under its Grants Scheme for Large Tourism Projects 2016-2020. The total project cost, including funding from the owners of Strokestown Park House, Westward Holdings Ltd – in partnership with the Irish Heritage Trust - will be €5.1million. This is one of 47 large capital projects Fáilte Ireland is supporting across the country - all of which are designed to deliver new and significantly enhanced experiences.
Brendan Griffin T.D., Minister of State for Tourism and Sport will today announce Fáilte Ireland investment of €3.9million for the new National Famine Museum at Strokestown Park in Co. Roscommon. This is the largest investment to be made in a visitor attraction in Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands over the last 10 years.
The existing famine museum at Strokestown Park will be transformed into the new state-of-the-art National Famine Museum which will tell the complete story of the Great Famine for the first time.
The museum will bring visitors on a journey through the Great Irish Famine across 11 distinct zones; from experiencing how the ascendancy rose in Ireland from 1620 onwards, when Catholics owned two-thirds of the land, to the early 1800s when the majority of the land was owned by landlords.
Artefacts and documents from Strokestown’s extensive archive – which is home to the largest collection of material relating to the Great Famine – will be showcased throughout the new museum including the renowned Cloonahee Petition.
A new visitor centre and café will also be developed at Strokestown Park. #IrishHeritageTrust #peopleplaceparticipation
