Auditing our holy wells

Zena Hoctor

Involving the local community in the gathering and sharing of information about their local holy wells is a primary aim of "The audit of the holy wells of the County of Galway" which is funded by The Heritage Council and Galway County Council, and is an action of Galway County Heritage and Biodiversity Plan 2017 – 2022. Through social media call-outs, press releases and radio interviews, the invite has been extended and a great response has been received with photographs and stories being sent to the project. Web pages, videos and a map based digital platform are being produced and will be shared through the Galway Community Heritage website and community social media channels. For National Heritage Week 2020 "Learning from our Heritage", a short film on recognising the intrinsic features of holy wells is being developed.
