Welcome to Dundalk
We are a unique, vibrant Town Centre, etched out by our rich heritage and unique independent retail core structure. The jewel of the north east, we have a rich built heritage, strong restaurant culture and Vibrant Night time economy.
Through the transformative power of paint, the project will look at reinvigorating large areas of commercial property, capitalizing on recently completed regeneration works in the area, helping transcend the perceptions of Dundalk held by its visitors, residents and key stakeholders. The initiative aims to help business owners and landlords in the town centre with the complete transformation of tired facades on their historic buildings and shop fronts. Through unique public and private partnerships alongside corporate sponsorship.
Featured 2020 Projects
The project will focus on two core elements
• Retail Heritage Signage Restoration
• Commercial Facade Restoration
WELCOME TO CHURCH STREET
This area is a healthy vibrant part of the towns retail core, it is predominantly made up of longstanding family run businesses, from butchers, bakers electrical stores Vegetable stores and longstanding public houses. It has a healthy artistic culture with Bridge street studios, printers, law and family run restaurants. Its functionality has ensured its success over the last 50 year’s however some of those years have not been kind to the visible facade. This is something we are working to reverse with this new initiative.
