Mid West Lime were the successful tenderer for this project for Clare County Council. The scope of works for this job was first to remove all ivy and other vegetation. Stone was to be reinstated where indicated by drawings. Coping stones were recovered from the base of the ruin where an archaeology survey was carried out and under instruction these coping stones were reinstated to a location on the gable end.
Masonry was reinstated to the Machicolation at the NW corner of the structure. There was a large crack running from the ground up to the top of the wall at one corner. This crack was stitched with masonry and pack pointed. Helifix crack stitch repair system was used at this location to reinforce the repair. A section of the masonry at the NW corner was repointed with a mortar selected to blend with the natural colour of the Burren stone.
