Press Release- Heritage Week 2015 'Thank You'

Heritage Week 2015 ‘Thank You’

Kildare County Council would like to say a sincere thank you and well done to all the event organisers and visitors who took part in Heritage Week 2015. With over 120 events and nearly 10,000 visitors, this year’s event was our biggest and best Heritage Week yet.

Over 92 organisations, groups and individuals spent many weeks and even months of hard work preparing for Heritage Week 2015, with 120 events held throughout the county from August 22nd- 30th.

This year’s theme, ‘Ireland’s Industrial and Design Heritage’ was truly represented in many of the events along with Kildare’s coloured and interesting history.  Events included battle re- enactments and recreations of Kildare’s ancient past as well as walks, talks and exhibitions on Kildare’s natural, social, cultural, archaeological and industrial heritage.

More information on the events that were held this year can be found on www.kildare.ie/countycouncil/Heritage/ in addition to other useful information on heritage in Kildare.
