The Irish Walled Town Network (IWTN) was established by the Heritage Council in 2005 to unite and co-ordinate the strategic efforts of Local Authorities involved in the management and conservation of historic walled towns in Ireland. There are currently 28 walled towns and villages in the group.
The role of the Irish Walled Towns Network (IWTN) is to unite and co-ordinate strategic efforts of local authorities involved in the management, conservation and enhancement of historic walled towns in Ireland both North and South.
Gary Dempsey of Digital Heritage Age has been working on a project on the four Tipperary Towns in the Irish Walled Town network during the summer of 2021. He has visited all towns and taken a series of photographs of some of the archaeological features from which he has generated 3 D models. He has collaborated with artist John Flynn who has produced a series of sketches.
