The Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland


Dry Stone Construction is a recognised Intangible Cultural Heritage or Living Heritage. The Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland (DSWAI) was founded in 2009. It is a non-profit organisation which is run entirely by volunteers. The current committee is mixture of professional stonemasons and those with an interest/background in the area. The aim of DSWAI is to create an awareness of the need for preserving the craft of ‘dry’ stone building in Ireland. They hope to advance the education of the public and professionals in the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the craft of building and repairing traditional dry stone walls in Ireland.
