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.

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.
