Rather than reiterating the evidence of the past, it is the Heritage Council's intent to set out a vision for the Irish landscape in the future. According to the Heritage Act, 1995 [pdf 96kb], 'landscape' includes areas, sites, vistas and features of significant scenic, archaeological, geological, historical, ecological or other scientific interest. Our vision is that the Irish landscape will be a dynamic, living landscape, one which accommodates the physical and spiritual needs of people, with the needs of nature in a harmonious manner, and as a result, bring long-term benefits to both.
