Earlier this year, HistoricGraves held a number of Open Nights in West Cork to rally the troops for community training in historic graveyard recording.
Suitably rallied and briefed, these community groups are now starting projects to record and digitally publish their local graveyards. The first field training days started this week at Knockavilla, Keel and Innishannon. Here's the schedule for the next couple of weeks:
Rathbarry, Castlefreake: Monday 10 & Tuesday 11 June
Kinsale: Wednesday 12 & Thursday 13 June
Union Hall: Monday 17 & Tuesday 18 June
Inchigeelagh: Wednesday 19 & Thursday 20 June
Dates for the end of June and for July are still being arranged.
If you'd like to volunteer an extra pair of hands, contact HistoricGraves by email.
The training is funded by West Cork Development Partnership in collaboration with Cork County Council.
