Get Involved and Celebrate National Heritage Week

Each year, during the last week of August (19-27 August), many national and hundreds of local community organisations participate by organising events throughout the country as part of National Heritage Week. Many of the events that take place during the week are free. Heritage Week highlights the abundance of great work that is carried out in all communities in Ireland to preserve and promote awareness of our natural, built and cultural heritage.

Even if you cannot make it to one of the organised events, you can still ‘remotely visit’ and learn more about some great wetland heritage sites around Ireland by taking one of the story map tours that Wetland Surveys Ireland and Foss Environmental Consulting have prepared for:
