Heritage Week continues in Co. Kildare today, with over 134 events taking place between now, and August 26th.
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.
Most events are free, but booking may be required.
Among the events in Kildare today are tours of the Hill of Allen, Maynooth Castle and Castletown House and a seminar on Athy’s waterways
Nationally, 2,000 events are scheduled.
