Carlow Town Council has appointed the main contractor to construct the new Carlow County Museum premises. The new development involves the restoration of the former Presentation Convent on College Street, Carlow Town. It should be completed in mid-2011. The Museum will help cater for the cultural and educational needs of the community and provide a much needed indoor heritage tourism amenity for the county. The Museum already contains a growing collection of over 5,000 artefacts.
