Faughart Historical Properties Preservation Society was founded in 1997 to survey and assess the many sites of historical interest which are to be found throught the parish.
Many of these ringforts, wells, souterrains and old graveyards have deteriorated over the years, and are inaccessible to the public.
The heritage and history of the area is in these properties. Without attention now, this heritage as a source of education for the youth and interest and pleasure for the general public, will be lost.
The members of FHPPS embarked on a programme of cleaning and restoration of these sites, initially to protect and preserve them and, when they would be accessible, to incorporate them in a Heritage Trail for visitors.

The Society has withdrawn from maintenance and preservation work where access to sites has not been readily available.
