Graveyarding in Aghada, Cork Harbour.

The collection of headstone and tombstone inscriptions of the Parish continues apace. In the last offering I neglected to mention the Long Point where it is suggested that therein lie, unmarked, many victims of famine and fever. Let us hope they are at peace.

When the stones were being photographed for the Internet we were ably provided with archaeological and technical assistance from John and Maurizio of Eachtra. For this we are grateful to Secad and offer our sincere thanks.

Historic Graves - The Project 2012

There are over 3600 historic graveyards in Ireland with 1400 years of history carved into stone. In the past year we have helped survey 6734 graves in 79 graveyards and collaborated with 20 community groups, 7 local authorities and 6 Leader companies. 

We are a grassroots project. We leverage technology for community and economic development through hyperlocal heritage engagement. We capture local stories of place in local voices and we embed them in place.
