We’ve reached the 100 townlands mark!

We have just reached the 100 completed townland mark! So far we have 103 townland surveys, or just under 15% of the county, completed and returned to the coordinator for cataloguing. This is a great landmark for the project, but we have a lot more work to do to meet our target.

We know that many of you have survey sheets at home waiting to be returned. From this week completed survey sheets can be returned to any branch of the Louth County Library in Dundalk, Drogheda, Ardee, Dunleer or Carlingford. Or you can contact the coordinator directly (0879935876) to arrange collection.

For those of you who have yet to complete your surveys, it’s not too late, but time is running out! Our funding body, Louth LEADER, have asked us to finish up the project by the end of May. This means that we need field names surveys to be completed and returned as soon as possible, so that we have enough time to input the data in our project database, and to analyse it and to prepare the final publication.

If you have any questions, need any help or materials, please do not hesitate to contact the project coordinator Eve Campbell on 0879935876 or evejennifercampbell@yahoo.com

You can download our survey sheets or the project handbook directly from our blog as a pdf.
