O’Brien’s Tower to Undergo Restoration
O’Brien’s Tower, the landmark building that stands on a headland at the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare, will undergo restoration in the coming weeks.
Millions of people from around the globe have visited the tower since local landlord Cornelius O’Brien constructed it in 1835. The viewing platform is located near the highest point of the 214-metre high cliffs and provides views of Clare, the Kerry Mountains, Galway Bay and the Aran Islands.
Clare County Council, which owns the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience, today (Friday, 18 January 2019) signed contracts with Mid-West Lime Ltd. to carry out works including the removal and replacement of existing stair enclosure, staircases and windows and the application of a lime wet dash externally as well as the repair of the internal face of the stone fabric of the tower. The works will commence in February and are scheduled for completion in early May.
