The project is for volunteers from the Society’s members to record in proper fashion the contents contained within, or attached to, and also the structure of the building, so as to arrive at a completely detailed record of the church at a certain time, the first time such church recording has been done in the Republic.

It is hoped that the finished work will be published in hard copy and digitally, and stored with the ecclesiastical authorities, the Public Museum, City & County Archives, and City Library, each in an appropriate form.

Voluntary assistance has been forthcoming from the Chief Archivist, Brian McGee, and Dan Breen, Assistant Curator at the Public Museum, who have provided training where required in inputting into AdLib Museum, and other software matters.
