A number of local authorities in Dublin, Kilkenny and Cork combined to organise an Historic Graveyards Roadshow which ran from March-September 2012. Supported by the Environment Fund 2012 (Department of Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht) , the Local Authorities and Historic Graves, this roadshow combines training in heritage conservation, archaeology, local history and genealogy for community groups and schools in a number of communities.
Communities are learning new techniques for surveying historic graveyards and for publishing their own heritage to a broad audience on the internet, combining headstone photographs with audio and video stories of people and place. Local heritage groups, national schools and secondary schools are involved in the project.
The Historic Graves Roadshow 2012 wishes to acknowledge the financial assistance provided under the Built Heritage element of the Environment Fund by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht towards this project.
