1892: 55 & 56 Victoria c.46: An Act to amend the Ancient Monuments Protection Act, 1882.
1. Where the Commissioners of Works are of opinion that the preservation of any ancient or mediæval structure, erection, or monument, or of any remains thereof, is a matter of public interest by reason of the historic, traditional, or artistic interest attaching thereto, they may at the request of the owner consent to become the guardians thereof; and thereupon the Ancient Monuments Protection Act, 1882, shall apply to such structure, erection, or monument, or remains, as if the same were an ancient monument to which that Act applies as defined in that Act.
Provided that this Act shall not authorise the Commissioners of Works to consent to become the guardians of any structure which is occupied as a dwelling-place by any person other than a person employed as a caretaker thereof, and his family.
2. The Commissioners of Works may apply any surplus income arising from the moneys paid to them by the Commissioners of Church Temporalities in Ireland towards the maintenance of any structure entrusted to their guardianship under this Act of the character described in section twenty-five of the Irish Church Act, 1869, whether the same was or was not vested in the Commissioners under that Act.
3. This Act may be cited as the Ancient Monuments Protection (Ireland) Act, 1892, and shall be construed as one with the Ancient Monuments Protection Act, 1882, and that Act and this Act may be cited together as the Ancient Monuments Protection Acts, 1882 and 1892.
4. This Act shall apply to Ireland only.
