New Doors for historic St. Macullins Centre

Saint Macullins Centre is being managed by Lusk Community Council for community usage. The iconic building was originally constructed in 1847 and it remained a church until the 1970s. The original doors of Saint Macullins have recently been given a new lease of life. Maclyn Ltd were engaged by Fingal County Council to carry out specialist refurbishment works to painstakingly restore the doors to their former glory. The restoration of the doors involved their removal, for the first time in over 175 years ago. With this restoration works complete, hopefully they will last another 175!
