Ireland has revealed a “tentative” list of six sites it hopes Unesco will consider for World Heritage Site status.

Among the areas on the list are the Georgian area of Dublin, the Clonmacnoise monastery in County Offaly and the town of Cashel in Tipperary, which was among a number of sites first put forward in 1992 but still not been designated.

Dublin has been rebranded as “the historic city of Dublin” for the Unesco application, according to The Irish Times, and has been nominated for its architecture and its contribution to world literature.

The full list of submissions, put together by Irish environment minister John Gormley, will be presented to Unesco’s World heritage Committee at its meeting in Brasilia, Brazil, this summer.

Ireland currently has three World Heritage Sites: Skellig Michael, an island off the Kerry coast; Neolithic tomb mound Brú na Bóinne in County Meath; and the Giant’s Causeway in County Antrim.
