Survey of Churches and Graveyards Collection - complete collection of photos now online

All of the photographs from the Survey of Churches and Graveyards in County Clare have been added to the online photographic collection, with a total of 1,872 images now online. This collection is a photographic record of the medieval churches of County Clare and their graveyards. The photographs are part of “A Church and Graveyard Survey in County Clare” carried out by the late archaeologist and colleague Simon Large for Clare County Council. The survey was an action under the Clare Heritage Plan and provides a clear picture of the state of County Clare’s medieval churches in 2011. The photographs record in detail the walls of each structure, inside and out – wherever possible – and show their overall condition as well as recording items of particular interest such as doorways, windows and other architectural features. The condition of any associated graveyards is also recorded.

I was recently in County Clare Ireland with my mother visiting family and photographing headstones. I have a great number of photos as well as information and would like to know how to share this with your readers.
