iCAN - Irish Community Archive Network

Five local groups have signed up for this initiative to make local history and heritage available online - Clarecastle & Ballyea Heritage & Wildlife Group, Dúchas na Sionna, Kilkee Historical Society, Scattery Island Heritage Group and Shannon Archaeological and Historical Society.  All groups will join the Irish Community Archive Network (iCAN).  Each group will have their own website hosted by a heritage portal 'multisite' for County Clare.    This will encourage local communities to share their local history and heritage with a step-by-step training and mentorship programme.  The project will be based on the Galway Community Heritage model which currently hosts 12 websites and is co-ordinated by the National Museum of Ireland - Country Life.
