Archaeologists warn against delisting of post-1700 historical structures

HOLY WELLS, bridges, milestones, vernacular buildings, lime kilns and other industrial sites that post-date 1700 will be "left without any protection" following moves to "delist" them, the Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland has claimed.

In what it described as a "very worrying proposal", the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht is seeking to exclude all post-1700 archaeological and historical structures and sites from the national Record of Monuments and Places (RMP).
