The complex of archaeological monuments at Rathcroghan in County Roscommon is of major
national significance as the traditional site of the seat of Connacht’s Iron Age elite and the burial
place of the pagan kings of Ireland. Access to the monuments and potential long-term threats to the
complex and its setting as a whole have been a cause for concern. Consequently, Oxford Archaeology
has been commissioned by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government to
carry out the Rathcroghan Archaeological Complex Conservation Study. ADAS UK LTD have
contributed to the project in terms of landscape and ecological studies.
The Study covers an area of c 725 hectares, containing 114 Recorded Monuments of which 39 are in
the ownership or guardianship of the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government.
These date from the Neolithic to Medieval periods
