Built heritage surveys

The built heritage surveys will involve workshops on how to carry out remote sensing, field walking surveys, identify features in the landscape, aerial drones, and how to use video equipment to interpret the landscape and compare these with ground level sightings.

Bard of Armagh homestead committee

This project, which is led by local community volunteers focuses on the life of Bishop Dr Patrick Donnelly of Dromore, the “Bard of Armagh”. The scheme will centre on the Bard’s home, a uniquely important 18th century dwelling house in Lislea. It plans to explore the potential to bring the house back to its former glory. This important jewel in the heritage of the Ring of Gullion AONB deserves to be recognised.
