Monaghan County Council is seeking planning permission for a development which will include the demolition of some parts of the Lennard Arms Hotel in Clones.
The Lennard Arms Hotel is a protected structure, and permission is sought to convert it to an exhibition space which could host the Celtic High Cross in the Diamond.
As part of plans to turn the vacant hotel into to a heritage centre and exhibition space, the council is seeking permission to demolish extensions which were constructed in the 20th Century, as well as alterations to its interior.
This will require repair works to the hotel roof, the removal of internal linings, floors, walls and joinery in the former hotel.
It would also include conservation and replenishing of historic wall coatings, the repair of historic walls and ironwork balconies.
In order to convert the vacant hotel into an exhibition space, the works would also include the installation of roof lights and new windows along with new openings overlooking the public space, and the restoration and conversion of existing stores along Annalore Street into an exhibition space.
Earlier this month, it was confirmed to Shannonside Northern Sound that the council hopes to relocate the Celtic High Cross in the Diamond to the new exhibition space.
The original cross would be available to view in person during business hours and the new windows window would allow visitors to view it outside of these hours.
