About / Fúinn

The Dingle /Corca Dhuibhne History Timeline is a community driven project that sets out to put in place, for the first time online, access to the history of Corca Dhuibhne from the Mesolithic period to modern times. And is intended for a wide range of readership, including students, tourists, local people and all interested in our local and national heritage. Also, each historical event has been referenced to provide routes to further study. The first phase of this project from the first man to 1600AD is available now, on this website and the other sections will be released when they are complete.

The Dingle Peninsula also known as Corca Dhuibhne has a rich and fascinating cultural social and political history which is connected to the wider history of Ireland and Europe. The Dingle /Corca Dhuibhne History Interactive Timeline in collaboration with, historian, Dr. Paul Mac Cotter and photographer Valerie O Sullivan and local volunteers, have gathered together data and organized it in summary form allowing for ease of access and routes to further study. The timeline layout is a design by Conor Hurley.

The Timeline is extensible. It can be added to, as data becomes available or as more historians wish to contribute to it. The information on each event is presented in short summaries , most of which will be linked to a geographic location. This will make for a fully immersive experience for the user of the Timeline and exciting development for anyone interested in heritage history archaeology folklore and culture.

The Timeline is available in English and Irish
