Church Recording at St Anne’s, Shandon, Cork

With financial Assistance from the Cork City Heritage Fund, volunteers from among CorkDFAS’s members have been involved since 2016 in a church recording project with St Anne’s, Shandon, Cork.

Saturday November 26th: Final Church Recording Session

According to the DFAS Volunteering coordinator, David Ryan, volunteers from the Society’s membership have been working to record in proper fashion the contents of the structure of St Anne’s Shandon, so as to arrive at a completely detailed record of this historic church. The project is now entering its completion and we would welcome participation from any of our members for our final recording sessions in St Anne’s. No previous experience is required.

The objective of this project is 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.
