Waterford Ancient Graveyards Project

 

This project will look at the catalogue of graveyards in Waterford City and County. Many of these graveyards are ancient and contain a rich and valuable source of information on our predecessors, past generations. Our aim is to look at each graveyard and to preserve its being, sharing it with the Waterford community and our friends and relatives abroad.

 

The project in scope is a huge undertaking, which will not be possible without the help of volunteers, communities, the Waterford City and County Council (WCCC) and other partners. A considerable range of research has already been undertaken by people, groups, statutory bodies, genaelogical centres and others. We hope and intend to gather this information together.

 

The proposal is being prepaed at the moment and comments are always welcome to info@waterfordcivictrust.ie .

 

The main aims are 

 

  1. To gather and collate existing research on ancient graveyards

  2. To assess the current condition of ancient graveyards

  3. To plan the works required for each ancient graveyard - condition, accessibility, ownership, security.

  4. To survey the graveyard

  5. To work with local communities to preserve and protect these graveyards

  6. To cooperate and collaborate with partner bodies, WCCC, history/heritage groups, genaelogical centres and others

  7. To present, coherently, information on each graveyard to all interested persons, communities, bodies

  8. To actively promote the history of these sites.

  9. To devlop a tour for visitors, friends and ourselves.

 

The Project is phased, please follow the links to find out more.
