Heritage Centre for Slane?

The community of Slane has launched a major campaign to acquire the old Parochial House at the Square to establish a Boyne Valley Heritage Centre.
Following two years of community development and economic growth, the people of Slane are taking on their most ambitious project to date as they are currently trying to acquire the iconic building.
 They are proposing to establish the Centre as a destination hub for visitors to the region and one of Slane’s landmark buildings, the former Parochial House in the main square, has come on the market.
The project is being advanced on behalf of the community by a small voluntary local team of Pat Doyle, Conor Brady and Donal O’Gorman.
The building is currently in the hands of NAMA and the group is approaching local businesses in a bid to put together a local consortium buy the building.
From there, the next stop would be to raise money to restore the building and equip it.
Pat Doyle said “Our vision is to establish the Boyne Valley Heritage Centre in historic Slane to highlight and coordinate the wider heritage and tourist attractions of the Boyne Valley.
“As a major heritage and cultural centre, it will offer an opportunity for many visitors to explore the archaeological, literary, scientific and historical heritage of the wider region.
