Description

The popular community arts space is about to undergo a major development programme costing €1million which will see the building transformed in to a centre of typographic excellence.

The new centre, when completed, will house fully restored Kells printing presses which date back to the 1830s and at one time printed the Meath Chronicle.

The big attraction in the centre will the Wharfedale printing press dating from the 1830s. It is the same make as the Wharfedale press that was used in Liberty Hall, Dublin to print the Irish Proclamation in 1916.

The Wharfedale machine is one of only two if its kind currently on the island of Ireland.
