Conservation Management Plan
Galway County Council procured the services of 7L Architects to prepare a Conservation Management Plan for Temple Jarlath, Tuam comprising church, graveyard and associated features. The Community Monuments Fund was approved by the National Monuments Service, Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage and administered through Galway County Council.
A multi-disciplinary team included a conservation architect, structural engineer, archaeologists and ecologist.. Measured Building Survey, Photogrammetry & Laser Scanning as well as aerial photographs and a photographic survey of the ruins was carried out which provides a concise and accurate record for the site 2023. Notable features are a series of carved heads at the interior wall and window of the church. Trees impacting the recording and assessment were removed by heritage contractors under ministerial consent and monitored by the consultant archaeologist.
The Conservation Management Plan will inform all stakeholders how best to proceed with the protection, conservation and showcasing of this monument in the centre of the town of Tuam, County Galway. The second document comprises an Archaeological Assessment of Temple Jarlath prepared by Dominic Delany.
