National Heritage Week 2018 will take place from 18-26 August and event registration is now open at www.heritageweek.ie.
This year The Heritage Council are asking you to ‘Share A Story, Make a Connection’. It is your chance to share heritage stories in new ways, with new people. Everyone from young people to new arrivals to Ireland to retired people is encouraged to get involved and share your stories. Take a look at a list of 100 Event Ideas for inspiration!
National Heritage Week is coordinated by The Heritage Council and is a highlight of Ireland’s celebration of the European Year of Cultural Heritage.
Hundreds of event organisers around Ireland from museums to local community groups will host over 2,000 events. Most of the events that take place during the week are free to make heritage accessible to all. The programme highlights the abundance of great work that is carried out in all communities in Ireland to preserve and promote our natural, built and cultural heritage.
