Green Skibbereen secured funding from West Cork Leader Funding in 2020 to undertake a feasibility study for the project. The study will identify the physical requirements of the proposed activities for the upgrade of the property, in terms of repair, refurbishment, and any additional development (Brady Mallalieu Architects  – BMA).  The study, will also develop the business plan, and proposals for new uses of the house consistent with the overall philosophy of the MSH and having regard to best practice examples of such developments elsewhere (Exodea Consultants).
