Ireland Area 1: Meath, North Dublin and Dalkey

 Shenwick Island, Skerries, North County Dublin

The CHERISH team will undertake survey on priority sites such as Bremore Head in North County Dublin. A prehistoric megalithic complex and historic settlement are located at Bremore, both sites are threaten by active erosion of the coastline. A rapid coastal zone assessment from Rogerstown estuary to Loughshinny will document cultural heritage and coastal changes along this stretch of exposed coastline. Offshore from this study area, the Islands of the Irish Sea form zones of activity, have influenced movement and usage of the Irish Sea throughout prehistory and history. Maritime cultural landscape studies of various Islands will help further our knowledge and develop understanding of human interaction, along with investigating the impacts of climate change on the Islands of the Irish Sea.
