The CEO of Rothe House & Garden, Kilkenny – Ms Roisin McQuillan – has resigned her post to take up the position of Fundraiser for the organisation.

This resignation takes effect from Friday 13th June, and a new Executive Manager will be advertised shortly with an appointment to be made within the coming weeks.

Colm Murray, Chair of Rothe House Trust Ltd., said ‘Roisin’s experience over the past seven years has been invaluable to the work of the Trust, and Rothe House & Garden has gone from strength to strength in that period.  She will be missed in her role as CEO, but her new task as Fundraiser for the organisation is of central importance to the completion of the Renaissance project.’

Roisin McQuillan said ‘The Renaissance Project at Rothe House is the culmination of many years of hard work by volunteers and staff on the Conservation Plan, and one final push is required to complete it, so that the house & garden continue to be one of the ‘must sees’ on the Medieval Mile.  Almost 80% of the funding is secured through Fáilte Ireland, and my role in the coming year will be to secure the balance of that funding – required to get the project over the line. I plan to work with the community in Kilkenny (and further afield) who recognise the importance of its heritage that Rothe House represents. ’
