A new historic graves brochure has been launched for one of the most-visited historic graveyards in Ireland, St. Nicholas' Collegiate Church in Galway city. Jacinta Kiely of the Historic Graves Project and City Archaeologist, Jim Higgins produced the brochure. The brochure compliments a survey of the church's mortuary monument which was recently published at this link and for which data entry is still taking place.
Genealogical tourism is a big element in Irish tourism development and this project lead by Jim Higgins aims to combine the history, archaeology and genealogy of a number of churches in Galway city as a unified heritage tourism resource. The brochure (attached here in PDF, 1,95 MB) is one of a series which the same team have worked on over the last few years.
