The construction on the exterior of the building is now almost complete. The last of the windows were installed in mid-February. A lot of the major interior work is nearing completion.
Painting has begun and it is hoped that most of the interior work will be completed within the next three weeks.
The timber floors will not be installed for a further six weeks to allow the building to dry out completely.
The wet and windy weather have not been favorable to landscaping. However, some progress has been made. The oak trees that have been nurtured at Solas Bhride since 2007 were inspected and deemed to be in good condition for planting at the site.
We are in the process of negotiation a loan/loans to cover cost of completing the building. We still need to raise a further €790,000. Any donation is deeply appreciated. We need your help!
Donations can be made through the Donation Page at this website or directly to Solas Bhride Centre and Hermitages, 14 Dara Park, Kildare Town, Co.Kildare, Ireland.
Solas Bhride Centre and Hermitages will open in Summer 2014
