    aughty.org aims to provide a focus for information and discussion about the Slieve Aughty uplands in Counties Clare and Galway in the west of Ireland. The site was launched on Earth Day, April 22 2006 at a gathering in Crusheen called Aughty People and Earth Day, hosted by Heritage Inchicronan. People from around the region and further afield explored ways in which the heritage of the Aughties could be recorded, protected and enhanced by considering the region as a whole. On April 21 2007, the Aughty Gathering was hosted by Kilchreest-Castledaly Heritage Group. Slógadh Eachtai was held on April 19 2008 in Woodford, on April 20 2009 in Tuamgraney, on April 17 2010 in Gort, on May 7 2011 at Lough Graney, on April 21 2012 at Leitrim/Cillíní Díoma and completing the circle on April 20 2013 at Crusheen: at each of these events, the interest in this approach to the region's heritage was reaffirmed by large and enthusiastic attendances. We hope to stimulate more debate and research, connect groups and individuals and generally raise awareness about this unique place. If you'd like to contribute to this project or find out more about it, please contact us.
