Donegal Traditional Shopfront Guidance

Donegal County Council has commissioned custom to research, map and report on traditional shopfronts throughout the county as part of its Heritage Plan and as supported by the Heritage Council.  See press release about the project here: http://www.donegalcoco.ie/culture/heritage/heritagenews/whatsyourfavouritecountydonegalshopfront/ Shopfronts in the county are a tangible but delicate part of the built environment heritage.  Many quality examples of painted sign writing, hand carved lettering and simple bespoke joinery shop fronts still exist, but many are under threat.  These guidelines offer advice about identification, care and maintenance of existing shopfronts, and about the principles of design for new shop fronts.
