Digital Atlas of Dungarvan

Digital Atlas of Dungarvan is launched as part of Heritage Week 2020

The theme of National Heritage Week 2020 is ‘Heritage and Education: Learning from our Heritage’. In the spirit of sharing experience and knowledge, the Digital Atlas of Dungarvan has been developed under the topic of ‘Heritage on your doorstep’. Based on content for Irish Historic Towns Atlas, no. 30, Dungarvan/Dún Garbhán by John Martin (forthcoming October, 2020), the Digital Atlas is an interactive map that invites online visitors to discover Dungarvan in a new way by exploring town plans of different dates and detailed historical information for over 640 sites.
