Ireland Area 5: Kerry (Dingle & Iveragh Peninsulas)

Aerail iamge of McCarthy's Castle, Ballinskellig, Kerry

The hard coastlines of Kerry’s peninsulas offer an interesting comparison to the softer coastlines of the other CHERISH study areas. In this area CHERISH will undertake studies at a number of priority sites, this will include building on past work undertaken by the Discovery Programme on sites such as Skellig Michael, along with examining other threaten monastic sites in Kerry.  Rapid coastal zone assessment aims to record previously undocumented and build upon the records of the known archaeological sites.
