National Heritage Week took place this year from 15th –23rd August. It was marked locally by a series of heritage projects, developed by groups across Kildare and promoted online via www.heritageweek.ie.
Local heritage groups and organisers, families and communities across the country developed projects around this year’s theme of ‘Heritage and Education: Learning from our Heritage’. The theme was designed to promote the sharing of experience and knowledge, while ensuring the country’s heritage was more inclusive than ever in restricted times.
Based on this year’s theme, projects were developed around three broad sub-themes: Heritage on your doorstep; heritage and education; and relearning skills from our heritage.
