Adopt a Monument Workshop and Networking Event

Christina O’Connor and Eddie Cantwell attended the Adopt a Monument Workshop and Networking Event with other members of the Adopt a Monument Groups from around the country on Friday last.  The event took place at the Radisson Hotel in Athlone.  Attending also were County Councils, Community Archaeologists and the Heritage Council.  This was an opportunity for Adopt a Monument groups to meet and share stories about their sites and experiences.  The presentations outlined the story of the particular sites and why they applied and were accepted as part of the Adopt a Monument scheme.  As part of the event, along with the other groups the Dungarvan group were asked to deliver a short informal presentation about their site, what they have achieved as part of the scheme and what their future plans are. The group’s achievements and what they hope to accomplish in the future were outlined by Chrissy who was first to speak and did the Museum proud with her talk on the Gallows Hill Project and what Waterford Community Archaeology: Gallows Hill Community Group have achieved to date.  There were then round table talks with Heritage officers and Adopt a Monument personnel which took us into the late evening.
