NIAH surveys provide the basis for the recommendations of the Minister for Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs to the planning authorities for the inclusion of particular structures in their Record of Protected Structures (RPS). The data is available by province on the NIAH Data Download page and is .csv format. It contains all the Ministerial Recommendations published to date and is updated as surveys are published.
