THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

The Royal Irish Academy/Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann champions research. We identify and recognise Ireland’s world class researchers. We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated. The Academy is run by a Council of its members. Membership is by election and considered the highest academic honour in Ireland.

Digital Atlas of Fethard

The Digital Atlas of Fethard is a collaboration with the Irish Historic Towns Atlas, Fethard Historical Society and the Heritage Council.

Content for the Digital Atlas of Fethard is from the Irish Historic Towns Atlas (IHTA) no. 13 Fethard by Tadhg O’Keeffe, originally published in 2003. Users can view historical and topographical information about Fethard through history. Students from Presentation Secondary School also provide a layer of illustrations of Fethard’s significant sites.

For further details about the project and acknowledgements please see the information section of the Digital Atlas.
