Rossmore Mausoleum Conservation Group secured funding from the Department of the Enviroment, Monaghan County Council and the Heritage Council of Ireland towards the cost of restoring the roof of the mausoleum, however, the group was required to raise additional funds in order to cover the full cost of the work.
The group raised over €900 towards the restoration fund from a street collection in Monaghan Town held in August 2008. Thanks to all those who donated and to members of the group who gave up their time to help and to St Patrick's Church of Ireland in Monaghan for their assistance.
If you are interested in making a donation to the project, we would be happy to give you a presentation on the work done so far and plans for the future.
New Members, Volunteers
We are delighted to welcome new members and volunteers. Just come along to our next meeting and meet the rest of the group or send us an email
. Attending a meeting does not commit you to anything - we are happy to see you even if you are only interested in finding out about the project.
We try to host a number events throughout the year at the Mausoleum, including a very successful guided tour of work carried out so far during Heritage Week 2009. There are currently no events programmed. Watch this space as we will add information on events as they arise.

To help keep you up to date with what is happening on site at the Mausoleum, we will periodically post photographs online of the Mausoleum and the surrounding area that we are working on. The address of the site is: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rossmoremausoleum/
The group meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 8.30pm in the YWCA, North Road, Monaghan. All welcome.
