Roscommon County Council invites proposals from a suitably qualified consultant/s to provide Field Monument Advisor / Archaeological Consultancy Services to the Farming Rathcroghan EIP Project from appointment until 31st March 2021.

The Farming Rathcroghan Operational Group was granted a project budget of €0.984 million, through the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM) EIP-Agri fund, for an innovative project to address the declining socio-economic circumstances of the farming community, while addressing the need to preserve and create awareness of the unique archaeological landscape around Rathcroghan. This project will run until December 2023. The knowledge gained from this EIP has the potential to be replicated in future EU-funded schemes.

The Farming Rathcroghan EIP Project proposes to improve the socio-economic circumstances of farming, through testing innovations in the provision of a range of environmental and ecosystem services designed to protect and maintain the cultural landscape (e.g. landscape quality and archaeological condition, aesthetic and cultural services, promoting quality food production, enhancing biodiversity, improving carbon sequestration and water quality).

The Field Monument Advisor will be an integral support to the Farming Rathcroghan EIP Project. This role is a multi-faceted one, which will evolve as the project develops. The overall goal being a sustainable improvement to the socio-economic circumstances of the Rathcroghan farming communities, while preserving and creating awareness of this unique archaeological landscape.
