Field Monument Adviser Programme

The Field Monument Adviser Programme has been in operation since June 2004 and presently operates under the direction of the Burrenbeo Trust and the Heritage Council. The aim of the programme is to raise the awareness of the vast archaeological resource in County Clare and in the Burren in particular by giving the landowners and occupiers as much information as possible on the monuments on their properties and advising them on how to identify and manage the monuments.

Information on the monuments is also given to local community groups and schools and relationships have been established with farmers' groups and the Teagasc REPS (Rural Environment Protection Scheme) to promote the awareness of archaeology in County Clare and the Burren.

The field monument adviser scheme is available to all landowners in County Clare and anyone who requires information on monuments or potential sites on their properties should contact the field monument adviser.
