Lissan House Trust is a Charitable Trust established to secure the future of Lissan House and its estate for the benefit of the community in perpetuity. It is operated and controlled by a Board of Directors drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds who cherish Lissan and its heritage and who wish to see the Estate as a thriving hub at the centre of the community once again following many decades of decline.
Our aims are inspired by the good will of Hazel Dolling who gifted Lissan to the community on her death in 2006. Lissan has always formed a central part of the community and we would like local people to become actively involved in the future development and use of the Estate.
The Trust is working to build a wide ranging programme of activities and events which will appeal to the public and bring an income to fund further restoration and development work at Lissan.
Volunteering at Lissan
Lissan has always depended on the assistance and goodwill of friends to secure its survival and success. Since opening to the public as a major community resource in 2010, we have greatly depended on the help of volunteers to assist with the day-to-day practicalities of operating this Estate for benefit of all.
If you are enthusiastic about history, conservation, architecture, art or the countryside and outdoors and would like an opportunity to work closely with one of most fascinating properties in Ireland, we would love to hear from you. Whether you volunteer for the opportunity to make new friends, to work in an extra special place or for the valuable opportunity to enhance your CV, the Lissan House Trust can promise you one of the most rewarding experiences you can imagine.
Please contact the Property Manager by letter or email setting out the skills you think you could bring to this exciting project.
