The Achill Archaeological Field School continues to experience severe financial loss as a result of Covid-19 resulting in the cancellation of the 2020 program of courses.  There are no Government financial supports for small business such as Field Schools.

Please support the Field School by sending a donation to the School via the IBAN details below. Your donation will help sustain the work of the Achill Archaeological Field School and enable us to offer a comprehensive program of courses in 2021. The school supports local employment, currently totally reliant of summer visitors. Your donations will also be used to provide funding for post-excavation analysis, publications, and exhibitions depicting the history and archaeology of the island and the work of the field school.

All donations will be acknowledged with thanks.

Our Archaeology and Folklife Exhibition is open Monday to Friday 10:00am to 4:30pm at our Centre in Dooagh, Achill Island. Contact us on: +353 9843564.

The exhibition features a display of archaeological and folklife artefacts from Achill Island accompanied by a series of interpretive panels detailing over 29 years of research by the Achill Archaeological Field School.

Regular ‘Open Day’s’ throughout the year will showcase the work of the Achill Field School to create awareness of the local heritage and help preserve it for future generations.

Thank you.

The Achill Field School Team
