Openness rating:

The Geoheritage Programme is overseeing a project to audit all sites of geological heritage importance in Ireland.

Audits take place in partnership with the Local Authority and the Heritage Council of Ireland.

Twenty counties, including the four local authority areas of County Dublin, have been completed. Sites are assessed on their own merits under each thematic network.

Sites that are appraised, but which are not selected for NHA designation, are classified as ‘County Geological Sites’ (CGS), as recognised in the National Heritage Plan (2002). This enables their integration into county development plans.​

Full county reports are available on GSI website at: https://www.gsi.ie/en-ie/programmes-and-projects/geoheritage/activities/county-geological-site-audits/Pages/Completed-audits.aspx
