The Know your townlands project is implemented through The Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership Scheme. The LPS is part of the Heritage Lottery Fund’s programme to conserve and enhance some of the region’s most treasured landscapes. The LPS runs from September 2015 until August 2018.
The total budget for this project is £46,000
The project aims to raise awareness about the townlands in South Armagh, their history, their meaning and why they are important. The project aims to regain the oral tradition around the local townlands that has been lost in many communities. Each townland will be marked with boundary markers on roads that intersect them. There will be a townland brochure, an online space for the stories of the townlands to be documented and an educational resource for use in the local community and in schools.
