Re: Re: Central list of listed houses?
The process of listing buildings is described in the Planning & Development Act 2000 (Part IV Architectural Heritage, Chapter 1 Protected Structures) – see: http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/ZZA30Y2000.html
http://www.buildingsofireland.ie is the website of the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage. Unfortunately, only a few counties have been done so far, buildings detailed online are only a ‘representative sample’ and are not necessarily listed (definitely candidates, though). However, there are good descriptions and photographs of some very interesting buildings.
According to the Green Party, the main instrument for the protection of trees in Ireland is the Forestry Act 1946, with additional protection in the Planning & Development Act 2000. For more info see: http://www.greenparty.ie/en/in_the_dail/agriculture_food/23_nov_04_tree_protection
Also, South Tipperary County Council has its list of protected trees on the heritage pages of its website, see: http://www.southtippheritage.ie/pport/web/Sitemap/220.127.116.11.7 and its listed buildings are detailed in its Development Plan 2003-2009, see: http://www.southtippheritage.ie/pport/web/Sitemap/18.104.22.168.3
Hope this is helpful.
