National Heritage Week 2012!
Be part of it, it’s part of you!
National Heritage Week 2012 takes place nationwide from the 18th – 26th August and event registration will commence mid-April so now is the time to plan what it is you’d like to do to take part in the week.
All events registered by 31st May will be listed in the National Heritage Week Event Guide which will be available free at OPW Sites, Heritage Centres & Historical Societies, Fáilte Ireland Tourist Offices, Libraries, CNCI Members, NPWS Sites, Heritage Officers and County Councils, An Óige Hostels, Various Individual Museums (MSPI Participants), Bus Eireann Stations and some Hotels across the country.
This year we’re kicking off the week with a Built Heritage Day on Saturday the 18th of August. The aim is to highlight the rich and varied built heritage that Ireland has to offer and to encourage all owners of historic buildings to open their doors to the public during National Heritage Week. Further information about the Built Heritage Day will be posted on www.heritageweek.ie soon.
