Heritage Week 18th - 26th August 2018

Heritage Week 18th - 26th August 2018

Heritage Week is Ireland's annual celebration of our built, natural and cultural heritage and is part of a European initiative to encourage people to take an interest in their local heritage.

The theme for Heritage Week 2018 is 'Make a Connection', which aims to deepen the connection between people and heritage, and build a legacy of increased public engagement.

Heritage Week is exploring this theme through 'Sharing Stories'. 

The week is a chance to share heritage stories in new ways, with new people. 

Heritage Week is asking everyone, from young people, to new arrivals to Ireland, to retired people, to share their stories. 

During Heritage Week everyone will have the chance to connect with their heritage, to enjoy, learn about, appreciate and share it.

The County Kildare Heritage Week Event Guides are available in all libraries and Kildare County COuncil Offices or available for download from the Heritage section of the Kildare County Council website.
