Ireland has a great deal of historic material culture to preserve, especially when one considers its history and patterns of human settlement over the preceding millennia. In 1995, the Heritage Council was established under the Heritage Act of 1995 with a primary role "to propose policies and priorities for the identification, protection, preservation and enhancement of the national heritage. Visitors can begin on the homepage by looking at a number of the Council's news releases, or by signing up to receive the electronic edition of its monthly email newsletter. The publication section is quite strong, and visitors can search currently available online materials by "sector", such as forestry, ecclesiastical heritage, and stained glass. Visitors may also want to take a look at their thematic areas of research and outreach, which also contain documents and practical information about visiting various sites and locales throughout Ireland.
