Directed Archaeological Research For World Heritage Sites
The National Monuments Service (NMS) of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht (DAHG) has allocated a fund for directed research into the archaeology of the Brú na Bóinne and Skellig Michíl World Heritage Sites and also those sites on Ireland’s Tentative List for which a Technical Evaluation has been satisfactorily concluded. The grant is to be administered by the Standing Committee for Archaeology of the Royal Irish Academy.
