The Monastic Ireland project – funded through the Fáilte Ireland Applied Research Scheme and Department of Arts Heritage and the Gaeltacht Built Heritage Scheme – has assembled accurate and comprehensive material relating to the history, landscape and material culture of Irish monastic houses c. 1100–1700, presented online through www.monastic.ie.
www.schools.monastic.ie is a crowd sourcing site that will facilitate resources for users including schools, local history groups and cultural tourists and will provide an important outreach feature to Monastic Ireland.
