Caimin O’Brien, Archaeologist with the National Monuments Service, will bring to life the people in the 1901 Census, mapping where each of the families once lived.  Our task is to find where each house is or once stood and we seek help from anyone who may have knowledge of these houses. 

Caimin will demonstrate how the mapping is done and show how the story of each family can be all brought together in one place.  Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.


Every day I need you Lord, but this day especially,

I need some extra strength to face whatever is to be.
