• The protection and preservation of the building itself

When work is completed, the National Gallery of Ireland will be equipped as a world-leading gallery space, meeting the international standards for the exhibition of both its own collections and visiting artworks from other important collections.

The project is expected to generate approximately 300 full time construction and specialist jobs. In the region of €20 million will be spent on the project between 2013 and 2015.

Minister Deenihan commented: "This is the single largest transformation at the National Gallery of Ireland in 150 years. I am delighted to announce this extensive refurbishment, which will deliver both a world-leading national gallery and also generate 300 full time construction and specialist skills jobs.

"I would like to thank my colleague, Minister for Public Expenditure, Brendan Howlin TD, for recognising the national and international importance of the National Gallery of Ireland and for providing funding to allow this project to proceed.

"This project marks a rebirth for the historic Dargan and Milltown Wings - and will safeguard these historic buildings, and the priceless works of art that they hold, for future generations."
