MONUMENTS IN GLIN: A list of national monuments in the Glin area is available in the library or can be seen on archeology.ie. This includes fairy forts, standing stones, castles etc. Kilns are similarly protected. Most farmers in REPS are aware of the heritage items on their land but those not in REPS may not be as familiar and may not be aware that contractors doing land reclamation work could damage these historic monuments, thus leaving the land owner liable for large fines and potential loss of single farm payment, legal fees and archaeological restitution fees, not to mention adverse publicity, and jail. Post the 2004 National Monuments Act, any destruction of these items is a criminal offence. Destruction mainly occurs due to ignorance (not malice towards) of these historic features , overgrown scrub may conceal a standing stone, the raised worn circle in the side of a field could be a fort, worn down by cattle grazing, etc. The list is compiled by townland, for ease of use, describing the location and a written analysis of the feature recently undertaken by a government archaeologist, and a copy will be in the local creamery shortly.

GLIN GAA AGM: will be held in the Club House on Friday night the 25 January at 9.00 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
