Athenry House is the only Georgian Period House inside the town walls of Athenry. It is currently in a derelict state and in danger of total destruction from vandalism and fire. Friends of Athenry House and Park are asking for your support to request the County Council to re-zone this unique building and its grounds to civic amenity use. This will save this unique building for the benefit of the community and serve as a locus for the social, cultural and natural heritage needs of the town. The primary aim is to aquire the house and surrounding land, to restore it and to develop an arts and leisure facility that incorporates a wider social objective such as education, tourism and to form links to enterprise and small business. Thus the ultimate objective will contribute significantly to the regeneration of the adjacent town centre.
