Intro Text 

The Draft Development Plan includes all recorded monuments and places within the County. Some of these monuments are also defined as Protected Structures (as they are structures and of special interest). These items are therefore protected under both the National Monuments Act and the Planning Act.


The Record of Monuments and Places (RMP), includes the results of the Archaeological Survey of Ireland, and is a statutory list of all recorded archaeological monuments known to the National Monuments Service. These sites all receive statutory protection under the National Monuments Act 1994 and amendments. The record is a dynamic one and is updated to take account of on-going research and new archaeological discoveries.
