Deputy Noel Ahern: A programme of routine maintenance on Connolly’s Folly has begun that will take place over 2007/2008. The interior of the structure has been cleaned and the site fenced in preparation for the erection of scaffolding in order to assess its structural stability and plan detailed conservation works. It is proposed, in the future, to allow visitor access to the interior and parapet of the Folly. To this end, the matter of the presentation of the site consisting of 4 acres, the question of car parking and visitor facilities is under consideration.
