The transformation of Eglantine House, from a roofless shell to a stunning country property, thanks to funding from the Northern Ireland Environmental Agency's Historical Buildings Grant Scheme, shows how our heritage can be not only saved, but put to good use if the will is there.
The work on the Hillsborough property was lauded by Environment Minister Alex Attwood as a shining example of how important buildings can be rescued.
Perhaps then he might reconsider his own decision to allow the demolition of the Athletics Store building in Belfast. It too is part of our heritage, but will soon be consigned to history.
