1744

Admission charges to all fee-paying open OPW heritage sites across Ireland are being waived in line with the Government’s recovery and reopening plan outlined in The Path Ahead, a Fine Gael Councillor has said.

Councillor Declan Burgess has welcomed the announcement from Minister for the Office of Public Works (OPW) Patrick O’ Donovan which will support the tourism industry and local businesses in Tipperary by incentivising people to discover, enjoy and cherish the many OPW heritage sites spread across the county. 

The measure is effective immediately and will remain in force until the end of the year. Councillor Declan Burgess said: “This is great news for the tourism industry in Tipperary as well as for those who are exploring their staycation options this summer. With a growing list of open heritage sites and the easing of travel restrictions, we have a renewed opportunity to explore the treasures which the OPW holds in trust for the nation.
