National Heritage Week 2018 runs from 18th to 26th of August. Organised by the Heritage Council, this annual jamboree of all things heritage sees free events, activities, walks, talks, music and more at venues all across Ireland.
In 2018, Heritage Week will be a highlight of Ireland’s celebration of the European Year of Cultural Heritage. This initiative by the European Commission and coordinated in Ireland by the Heritage Council aims to involve all citizens in events that help to promote a sense of belonging to a common European space.
The theme for the Year in Ireland is ‘Make a Connection’ which aims to deepen the connection between people and heritage, and build a legacy of increased public engagement. As part of European Heritage Days, Heritage Week is uniquely placed to celebrate connections with our European neighbours and each other.
