Mid West Lime were the successful tenderer for the pointing and plastering work at Ormond Castle. The original structure on site was built in 1309. Later additions were added with the last addition built in 1560.
This project involved re pointing problematic areas of masonry with a lime mortar. There was significant water ingress over windows and through parapet walls. The walls were then fully rendered with a four-coat render. Two further shelter coats were then applied along with four coats of a pigmented lime wash.
It is hoped that with the new pointing and the lime render that it will significantly reduce the water ingress in the building.
