Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government
World Heritage Status
In order to nominate a site for World Heritage Status, it must be on the tentative list of sites submitted to UNESCO. The current tentative list was compiled in 1992 by an internal Departmental committee, following a public consultation process, and formally submitted to UNECSO in accordance with the UNESCO World Heritage Convention. Georgian Dublin was not included in the tentative list at that time. My Department will be reviewing the tentative list of sites next year and Georgian Dublin can be considered in the context of that review.
