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.

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!

Project Lift – Nearly there!

We’re getting there! Not much left to dissasmble now, just the base. Plenty left to ship out.

What does everyone think of all this so far? 🙂

Project Lift – update 4

As a follow up to the last update of picutres, as you can see, the buildings are stripped and nearly down.

We have had a great team of dedicated volunteers working constantly on the project 6 days a week since early January. Even though the team has been mostly quite small they have gotten enourmous amounts of work done and are proving that they are the team meant to get the job done.

We should see a couple of more weeks of dismantling, site clean and moving the last of the materials to off-site storage. Transport of the walls has been on going during the project, stacking them on pallets and keeping them on-site with no shelter isn’t really an option. We’ve had to spilt some of it up as we don’t have access to a storage area that will hold ever single bit but with a decent marking and documentation system we know where it all is and which parts we’ll need when we finally start to put the walls up again.

We will keep you updated on any more exciting further developments both here and on Facebook. The important thing is that Charleville Castle Members, Volunteers and Supporters have been bonding together to raise much needed emergency funds for our site Volunteer’s expenses, pay for their Safe Pass course, accommodation and food aswell as on-site equipment and transport costs.

Project Lift Update 3 – photos!

Finally, time to show off some of the progress we’ve been making!

We’ll try for another post with more of a naritive instead of a block of pictures to let everyone know what was going on. As you can see a lot of the fine, sunny days happened before the roof was moved, then the fog and snow rolled in for a few days.. Work still goes on!
