I welcome the news of funding of €15,000 for Agher Church, and salute the work of Cllr. Joe Fox in this regard as Chairman of Trim Municipal District Council. Our beautiful old buildings are one of the many reasons that people come to visit Meath. By supporting best practice in the conservation of our protected structures, we are contributing to the ongoing attraction of our county and our country as a tourist destination of choice.

The poet, political writer, and clergyman Jonathan Swift (1667–1745) was rector of Agher Church at one time.

Welcoming the news Cllr. Joe Fox stated: “I am delighted to receive word from the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys and local Minister Damien English that Agher Church, Rathmoylan is one of 28 heritage structures across the country that will benefit from a total of €624,000 in funding under the Structures at Risk Fund 2015. Agher Church will receive €15,000. I believe the preservation of heritage structures like Agher Church is very important for our pride of place.”
