    Abstract

    The following fieldwork exercise is designed for use with Leaving Certificate students. It is based on the town of Maynooth which includes both a medieval castle and a university that is almost two hundred years old. It has within its environs a number of important elements of Ireland's heritage including Carton Demesne and Castletown House. While it is acknowledged that not all towns have the same range of tourist attractions, the exercise outlined here can be suitably adapted for application in other urban settings. The author gratefully acknowledges the helpful comments of AGTI members who "road tested" the exercise in May 1992.
