- 11 Mar 2014
Researchers from the Centre for Planning Education and Research have recently completed a study examining the history of iconic places in Ireland.
A new study, conducted by a team from the Centre for Planning Education and Research examining the history of iconic places in Ireland, identified as potential nature reserves by conservationist Charles Rothschild 100 years ago has been published this week. The Rothschild Reserves in Ireland 1914-2014, was compiled by Evelyn Sikora and Karen Ray, researchers in the Centre for Planning Education and Research and involved field visits to all 17 sites throughout the country by the Society for the Protection of Nature Reserves (SPNR) in 1914. This was followed by an analysis of archive documents to assess the changes to the sites over the past century.
