Moycullen Historical Society have secured funding from the Dept. of The Taoiseach, through the Local Diaspora Engagement Fund, for an Historic Graveyard project.
Saturday sees us start our project at the tSean Reilig in Homefarm, under the guidance of John Tierney of Eachtra Archaeological Projects.
The Historic Graves project is a community focused grassroots heritage project. Local community groups are trained in low-cost high-tech field survey of historic graveyards and recording of their own oral histories. They build a multi-media online record of the historic graves in their own areas and unite to form a national resource.
