Overview

The Marine and Coastal Heritage Directory is an online compendium of studies, surveys, maps and references relating to the Irish coast which was completed in 2006.

An initiative of the Heritage Council, the directory was compiled by Ger O’Donohoe of Moore Group, Stephen Nash of MarCon Computations International Ltd. and Aengus Parsons, with a contribution on Folklore by Catriona Hastings (GMIT).

Aims and Objectives

A resource for anyone interested in researching, studying or finding out more about the Irish coast and surrounding seas and coastal regions generally.

Benefits

The wide range of topics featured in the directory highlights the great impact that our seas have on coastal geology, archaeology, flora, fauna and people.

The directory provides information on seashore typologies and characteristics, marine life, coastal wildlife and habitats, the impact of climate change, mapping, special areas of conservation, legal protection for marine and other wildlife, natural heritage areas and designations, coastal archaeology, built heritage (including lighthouses), folklore and folk life.

The directory also features a series of international case studies as well as links to many of the organisations concerned with studying, managing, developing, mapping and protecting our coastal heritage.
