The old school in Cloyne remained derelict for over 30 years. This fine stone building was purchased by a local building family and a design was drawn up to convert if into a modern dwelling house. This necessitated a close working relationship with the County Architect and the Heritage department of the local County Council, who both sought to protect the very attractive features of the building.
The work carried out on the building ensured that the main structure and features of the building were protected, and retained fully.
The building, which originally contained three classrooms on one floor, now contains a family home on two floors with 4 full sized bedrooms.
This part of the heritage of the village, has now been protected and preserved to be enjoyed by future generations.
