Formed by the Heritage Council in 2005, the role of the IWTN is to help the Walled Towns of Ireland become better places in which to live, work and visit.
A collection of leaflets on basic building maintenance for Homeowners, produced in partnership with SPAB Ireland.
Good maintenance is important to buildings of all ages and types. Some deterioration of a building over time is inevitable but regular maintenance helps slow the rate and lessens the need for large-scale, costly work further down the line.
These leaflets are produced in partnership with SPAB Ireland in time for #IrishMaintenanceWeek (20-27 November 2020). The aim of this campaign is to encourage people to carry out basic building maintenance to protect their homes over the winter. Each maintenance sheet is complemented by a short explanatory video.
Produced as an action of The Heritage Council's Traditional Building Skills Initiative
