Story
Introduction
I grew up in Craughwell, Co. Galway, and received a BA (1991) and MA (1998) in archaeology from UCG/NUIG. Since 1997 I have been based in Belfast, in Northern Ireland. I am a former member of the Historic Monuments Council and The Joint Committee for Industrial Heritage. I keep a catalogue of Irish Radiocarbon Determinations and Dendrochronological Dates (IR&DD) and an associated Facebook page. I also run the William Dunlop Archaeological Photographic Archive and its associated Facebook page. I also provide archaeological consultancy services.
