5 April, 2022 – Geophysics at Seir Kieran & YT Videos – Community Project
Conservation works at Seir Kieran, Clareen in Co. Offaly are reported on in this article. We were happy to help the community by surveying the walls that are interestingly from varied periods and purposes.
Dr Ger Dowling (Irish Archaeologist and specialist) conducted the geo-physics here, and the graveyard survey is ongoing with Stephen Callaghan at the historical site of Seir Kieran. For more information, and a look at some of the results, see our YouTube channel for our ‘Heritage Week’ community lectures that were filmed by Crannog Media.
