A Castle Fit for a King (once again)

In Museum [Insider], Museums, new content on June 2, 2011 at 10:15 am

King John’s Castle in Limerick is preparing to start work on a major redevelopment project.  Built by the nasty King John of England almost 800 years ago, the castle has not been performing quite as well as it could do as a visitor attraction and heritage centre. So Shannon Development – a regional developement agency in south-west Ireland – has received 5.7 million Euro in funding to work on the site, improving the visitor offer and facilities, including reworking the interpretation of the site.

I spoke with the project manager at the castle and wrote the piece up for an article on Museum [Insider]. The site is planned to stay open during the redevelopment work, which is expected to be complete by summer 2012.
