The Department of Housing has allocated nine million euro as part of the Urban Regeneration fund to bring the iconic Iveagh Market to its former glory.
Minister for Housing Dara O’Brien has announced the approval of nine million euro to be dedicated to “essential conservation works” of the Dublin landmark.
The 116-year-old structure, which has fallen into ruin over its 30-year vacancy, will see repairs to the walls and roof at the start of next year. This process will ensure that the building will be able to be certified for reuse and possible repurposing.
The goal of this project is to ensure no further dilapidation of the structure and set a foundation for future endeavours.
The market was first developed in 1907 by the Guinness family and fell into disrepair after consistent neglect over its 90 year business.
