Work is underway on the refurbishment of Cultra Manor, at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum. This house was built at the sart of the 20th century by Sir Robert Kennedy, a British diplomat, a great Ulsterman, and a member of an old Ulster-Scots family that settled in the area in the middle of the 17th century.

The refurbishment, which will be finished by next spring, will cost £2.9m but will provide a high-quality education centre and a facility that can accommodate corporate events. The work is being carried out by a local building firm, which is good for the construction industry.
