Welcoming the funding for this and the Drogheda Museum Millmount, Fergus O'Dowd, TD for Louth said

"I'm delighted to see two very important local applicants receiving over €9,000 under the scheme, the County Museum in Dundalk has been approved for €8,500 for their  Iconic buildings - engineering a vision Project, and the Millmount Museum in Drogheda approved for €700 for a paper archive project."

The County Museum's project will focus on incorporating scale models constructed by students from DIT, as well as a selection of other artefacts the exhibition will focus on a sample of Engineer Peter Rice’s most high profile projects highlighting his central role/contribution in their completion.
