The term "archeological monuments" embraces man-made structures as well as natural earth or rock features altered by man. First appearing during the era of Neolithic art, archeological monuments in Ireland vary considerably in size and complexity, ranging from megaliths like the famous passage tomb cemetery of Newgrange (see also: Megalithic art) to petroglyphs featuring rocks decorated with cup and circle designs, while rural monuments include examples of ringforts or raths, as well as castles, round towers, abbeys, monasteries and churches. Urban archeological monuments include medieval, Norman and Elizabethan town walls, ditches, gates and bridges. Underground archeological sites, such as buried deposits are also not uncommon, and these ancient deposits or hoards of artifacts can reveal as much data about our predecessors. The earliest known archeological sites in Ireland (Leinster, Munster, Connacht and Ulster) comprise traces of temporary settlements inhabited by prehistoric (Mesolithic and Neolithic) fishermen, and hunter-gatherers dating to 6,000-8,000 BCE.

National Monuments in Ireland

All Irish archeological monuments are protected by law (the National Monuments Acts 1930 - 2004), and their details are recorded by The National Monuments Service of the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government.

Those monuments that are of national importance because of their historical, architectural, traditional, artistic or archeological interest (as outlined by Section 2 of the National Monuments Act 1930), are called "national monuments". At present, there are over 1,000 individual monuments (located in 768 separate sites), varying from wedge- portal- and passage-tombs of the neolithic era, to medieval churches, priories, abbeys, monasteries and castles, and historic buildings of more recent times. Such structures may be taken into ownership or guardianship of the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, as outlined by Section 5 of the National Monuments Act (1930). These nationally-important monuments are looked after by several organizations. Conservation of these monuments is handled by the Office of Public Works, while responsibility for the archeological aspects of projects rests with Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government.

List of Archeological Monuments in Ireland

Irish culture embraces a rich ancient heritage of Stone Age sites (eg. the Céide Fields), architectural structures (eg. Newgrange), Iron Age Celtic art (notably Celtic metalwork art and monumental sculpture like the Turoe Stone), and Christian monastic settlements (eg. Monasterboice, Clonmacnoise, Kells, Durrow) responsible for illuminated manuscripts and religious ringed High Cross sculpture. More modern but of no less significance to the history of Irish art and culture, are the Romanesque and Gothic remains of numerous churches and abbeys built by the Augustinian, Benedictine, Cistercian, Dominican and Franciscan Holy Orders, Norman castles (eg. Maynooth Castle), and numerous country houses built in the Elizabethan, Palladian and Queen Anne styles of architecture, along with Irish sculpture, decorative artworks, fine furniture, textiles, tapestries, stained glass and other craftwork. Many of the latter housed rich patrons of Irish painting (notably landscapes and portraiture in the 17th and 18th century. Some of these modern structures (eg. Dublin Castle, Aras an Uachtarain, Muckross House, Royal Hospital Kilmainham) are now home to important officers and offices of state, and aspects of Irish culture. And many of these monuments were closely associated with the development of visual arts in Ireland.

Early Christian Monastic Settlements

The early Christian Church in Ireland played a hugely important role in the maintenance of European culture and heritage during the Dark Ages (c.400-800 CE) and early Medieval period (c.800-1200) of history. Key cultural developments during this time included the glorious calligraphic art of the illuminated manuscripts, such as the Book of Kells and Book of Durrow, as well as the series of freestanding religious sculptures known as the ringed High Crosses, or Celtic High Crosses. The Church was the No 1 patron of the arts throughout this period and was instrumental in keeping alive many Celtic and Irish traditions in the visual arts.
