Traditional Building skills training

Traditional Building skills training

The Traditional Building skills training is implemented through The Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership Scheme. The LPS is part of the Heritage Lottery Fund’s programme to conserve and enhance some of the region’s most treasured landscapes. The LPS runs from September 2015 until August 2018.

The total budget for this project is £26,500

This project aims to provide skills training in traditional building skills at Slieve Gullion Courtyard.

Project Updates

St Jude's church C.o.I Camlough

Update published on: September 27, 2014


Over the course of the day,  the geo-conservation volunteers from the Mournes Cooley Gullion geotourism project removed layers of broken glass, along with the majority of ground covering vegetation and levelled the soil at the church entrance. On the second volunteer day we removed the saplings growing inside the church  and turned them into a “mini-beast hotel” in the grounds of the church. More work will be carried out to complete this task.


Renovation of Church gates

Update published on: October 21, 2015


The old gates to the church yard were removed with the aim of sandblasting and re-galvanising them, but when the rust and old paint was stripped it was discovered that they were of an older manufacture than was previously suspected, with the joints being welded with lead. This would have melted in the galvanising tank resulting in a pile of metal slats rather than a gate, so instead the gates were just cleaned and painted with a number of layers of rust proof paint and were re-erected.
