Castlekevin Historical Background
Heritage Week Project
Delighted to report that the Society has been awarded 2 Community Monuments Fund grants This is a great achievement for the Society and a follow up of the video made for Heritage Week 2021. Castlekevin is a listed National Monument but is on private land. We are very indebted to the landowners to be allowed access to the site.
Castlekevin has deteriorated greatly in past few years. The larger grant is for preliminary lidar and geophysical surveys of Castlekevin. This has already started as it is imperative to get this done before the vegetation starts growing this year. The surveys are non-invasive and hopefully will show what can viably be saved. The second grant is for a podcast to cover the history, the surveying and hopefully the memories of people. If you have any memories and/or photos of Castlekevin as you were growing up or the people in the area, please let us know.
