This month saw the return of the Home Renovation Event which took place in the G Hotel on Sunday March 10th. We joined forces again with St Jarlath’s Credit Union for the second year to provide a showcase to all things renovate to a sold-out audience.
The highlight of the event was a talk by architect and TV broadcaster Declan O’Donnell who gave a talk the importance of architecture as well as his own self building journey.
Other speakers on the day included Shona O’Dwyer of St. Jarlath’s Credit Union who talked about her renovation experiences, Paddy Daly of Self Build & Renovations Ireland who talked about the self-build & renovate journey as well as his Facebook group, Barry Lowe who discussed SEAI grants & Niamh O’Donovan of Simple Styling who discussed all things interiors and how to declutter your home.
Exhibitors who also provided hands-on advice included – Brady Landscapers, Cherrymore Kitchens, Comet Renewable Energy, Dan- Éire Design, Door Centre, EZ Living, Ecowise, Galway Carpenters, Jonathan Byrne Tilers, Komandor, Nutherm, Senator Windows, Simple Styling, Upstairs Downstairs Magazine and William Mullins Builders.
Credit Union financial advisors were also on hand to offer advice on the Renovate360 loan whereby credit union members can borrow up to €75,000 for home renovations.
