The launch was a huge success and saw visitors flock in number to preview the brand new attraction at Brownlow House. Two very special guests were also be in attendance - a veteran who served with the US Troops and one with the RAF during World War II. Pictured here are the building contractors, architects, three members of the MMID/Mirador design and fit out team & council staff.
The upgrade of Lullymore Heritage and Discovery Park was among the projects completed by MMID/Mirador in 2013 and November 2014 saw the completion of Irelands first Biodiversity Boardwalk and Science and Nature Observation Centre. The boardwalk was officially opened by Minister for Social Protection Joan Burton on December 1st and she remarked how impressed she was with the visitor experience.
President Higgins described Wicklow Historic Gaol as one of the country's most important heritage sites, complimenting the building's remarkable upgrade. "We're able to engage with something that is very real, without devaluing the brutality and horror of the human suffering. The echoes are clearly heard in the stories told in this facility. History enables us to Interpret and craft our collective future."
