Adopt a Monument

Galway Rural Development - Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Adopt a Monument Ireland The Heritage Council in conjunction with Abarta Heritage and Archaeology Scotland are currently seeking applications from community groups across Ireland to participate in the inaugural year of the Adopt a Monument Ireland scheme. The Adopt a Monument scheme aims to empower communities to become actively involved in the conservation and interpretation of local archaeological and cultural heritage sites. By providing expertise, mentoring and support, this programme will assist community groups to help move their heritage site from the periphery to the very heart of the community. The scheme will be carried out throughout 2016 and five archaeological or cultural sites with opportunity for significant community engagement will be selected for participation in this scheme.  - The deadline for applications is midnight on the 22nd January 2016.

Welcome to the Galway Rural Development website. Galway Rural Development, through the programmes we administer, will continue to work along with other agencies, groups and individuals around the county to improve the quality of life for all citizens in our area. We especially wish to work with those who are most in need of assistance, to provide real opportunities for people to gain significant improvements for themselves and their communities throughout rural Galway.
