As we start to move away from Limerick

As the first phase of project lift draws to a close the second phase has already started! We’ve still got some of the waste treatment systems to remove from the site in Limerick if anyone can give a hand, again safepass required for it. You can contact us at info@charlevillecastle.com or through the contact page.

The second phase has actually been going on for awhile, it’s composed of planning and fund-raising. Such a large project would be nothing without either! We’ve got some good things planned with both buildings but as we start to leave Limerick we need to get going on fund-raising again to cover costs for moving the buildings and storing them. If you have any ideas for good fundraising events let us know! Alternativly there is a donate link on the right hand side of the site if you wish to contribute to this immense project for the castle.

We had a bit of a problem getting the latest pictures from the site in Limerick, hope to have them soon for a side-by-side comparison, might have a bit of video as well if it turned out well.

St Patricks day

Some photos from Saint Patricks day float that Charleville Castle and the Red Embers put in for the parades in Tullamore, Clara and Kilcormac.

We attended the Clara awards ceremony where we placed seventh. A big thanks to Bertie McMahon and everyone who helped organise the Clara Patricks day parade, it was a great day!

Project Lift – Update,.. We’re there!?

It’s been awhile coming but we can finally say, we’re there! After a phone call from Dudley on the site yesterday we can safely say every bit of the buildings, including the sewage treatment system, have been removed from the port tunnel site of Limerick. It’s an important milestone in this project, it marks the transition from work in Limerick to organising and sorting materials that have been transported off site to storage areas and to the Castle grounds.

We’ve still got a big job ahead of us but the first part is just about done with only some site clean up left, very soon we’ll be sitting down to planning and getting us through a busy summer, we have Shakefest comming up soon and Castlepaloozawon’t be far behind it!

A busy summer for sure, hope we’ll see plenty of familar and new faces around the Castle during the summer and when we start the next part, ground prep and of course finally putting up the buildings!
