A new website described as an invaluable tool for historical researchers, academics and the general public, has been officially launched today hosted by the Moore Institute for Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences at the National University of Ireland, Galway.

Cataloging the landed estates of Munster from the 18th to the 20th centuries, this new website brings together a distillation and collation of data from a broad range of historical sources, and the concise codification of this data on an Estate, Name and House basis.

The ‘Connacht and Munster Landed Estates’ project, was funded by the Irish Council for Research in the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions respectively. This project undertook the research and now the publication of a comprehensive and integrated resource guide to the landed estates and historic houses, both in Connacht and Munster. It is now published and presented on line in an easy to follow and friendly to use, format.

While the aim of the guide is to assist and support researchers working in the field of social, economic, political and cultural history, c.1700 to 1914, it will also greatly assist ordinary persons actively involved in tracing genealogy, not to mention those who enjoy reading basic historical fact.
