The St Columba’s Church Conservation Group received grants from the Heritage Council and Donegal County Council (DFI) to help with the first phase of conservation. The Group also received a small grant from the Heritage Council in 2017 to contribute to the cost of designing and erecting an information panel.  Funding will still be required in 2018 to pay outstanding bills and to complete the project. All contributions, no matter how small, are welcome.
