Built Heritage / Architecture
County Cavan is made up of many distinct communities of people. Our shared past, the unique or special nature of the area in which we live and our feeling of belonging combine to create sustainable communities in which people wish to live. One of the essential components in achieving this is the recognition, protection, and enhancement of our built heritage and archaeology.
County Cavan has a rich and diverse architectural heritage which consists of man-made features. These may include residential dwellings, farmhouses, old schools, Churches, castles, thatched cottages, industrial buildings, gate lodges, shop fronts and walls to name but a few.
It is essential that our built heritage, especially structures that appear in the Record of Protected Structures and Architectural Conservation Areas are protected.
