The Irish Georgian Society awarded a Commendation to Killua Castle, Co. Westmeath for the completed conservation work. The castle contains the core of a fine late-eighteenth-century house, greatly extended, probably by the architect James Shiel in the 1830's, into a turreted, castellated, asymmetrical castle.
It was built for the Chapman family and inherited by the Fetherstonhaughs. When bought by the present owner it had long been a roofless shell. PUNCH Conservation has worked on this project for a number of years with Conservation Architect Matthew Shinnors of Healy & Partners (Limerick), providing niche Conservation Engineering services, by the companies highly experienced Conservation team.
