is set to benefit from funding under the new Community
Monuments Fund. The archaeological monument will receive
€2,360 under the scheme.
St. Mura’s Cross in the historic
graveyard at Fahan.
Fahan Community Council in
partnership with Donegal County Council sought funding
for a ‘Baseline Survey and Stability Monitoring
Programme Plan’ to study a pronounced eastward tilt in
St. Mura’s Cross in recent years. The work will enable
the movement of this recorded monument to be carefully
monitored and will inform urgent conservation planning
and monitoring measures to be carried out at the site.
The plan will address the monument’s resilience to
weathering and to increased visitor numbers. The work
will be carried out under the conservation supervision
of archaeologists John Cronin & Associates.
If you are involved in the conservation of an
archaeological monument in Inishowen or would like to
make a future application to the Community Monuments
Fund, advice is available from the County Donegal
