Insurance for Thatched Buildings Survey
The Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage is working to resolve the urgent issue of insurance for thatched buildings.
We need particular details from owners of thatched properties to help us establish the facts. The information provided will be used to assist owners with getting fair quotes for insurance.
We would very much appreciate if only one form is filled in for each thatched property and returned to the Department. We are requesting the Eircode for the property so that we can avoid duplication. Forms that do not include an Eircode may be excluded from the analysis.
The information provided by you will be stored safely. It will not be shared with third parties in a manner that would identify the property or the owner. The Privacy Statement covering this survey and the form are available on https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/Thatch_Insurance_Survey

The deadline for the Thatch Insurance Survey has been extended to 31st of October Paper copies also available
Through policies in the Kildare County Development Plan and the promotion of various grant schemes, Kildare County Council aims to preserve the thatch cottages of County Kildare.
In this section, you will find advice leaflets and contacts for various grant schemes to assist with thatching.
