Press Coverage

Former Glory has been featured in many of the national newspapers and on RTE. The first coverage was in The Sunday Times Home Section back in July 2007 in an article by Niall Toner and since then the website has appeared in The Irish Independent, The Irish Times, The Sunday Business Post and various other publications.

“A new website offers advice and information to anyone who wants to bring old buildings back to life.”

“www.formerglory.ie is dedicated to the purchase, sale and restoration of historic structures, the fringe oddities of the property world.”

“Fancy restoring a crumbling gothic tower or a dilapidated mill? Ireland has ruins aplenty needing buyers with the inspiration and the funds to revive them.”

“Restoring a derelict property is not a job for everyone but, with some patience and the right builder, a pile of stones can be turned into a home”
