FINGAL County Council has received a boost after winning an architectural award for one of its projects. 

The council won the award for its work on the Newbridge House Courtyard at this year’s Irish Georgian Society’s Architectural Conservation Awards. 

County architect Fionnuala May accepted the award on the council’s behalf. 

“The project resolved shortcomings in the existing courtyard cobbling which had been become unsightly,” said Ms May. “In line with best conservation practice the works retained and reused as much original material as possible and the specification and design was faithful to the original. The design and character of the original surface including its pattern has also been maintained as a result.”

Mayor of Fingal Cllr Mary McCamley welcomed the news. 

“A huge part of Newbridge House’s appeal to locals and visitors is its beautiful and authentic architecture,” she said.
