We've pulled out some heritage themed events that are taking place for this years Crinniú na nÓg.

The national day of free creativity for children and young people, Crinniú na nÓg takes place this Saturday 13th June. There are a host of heritage themed events for young people to enjoy on the events programme from taking part in a virtual archaeology digs, to learning how to turn archives into art, adventuring in nature, learning how to craft, enjoying a film screening, taking part in a traditional singing workshops and lots lots more.

We've also pulled out some events that will help enhance your digital skills in presenting heritage projects you may wish to do over the summer for our KnowYour 5km initiative or for heritage week e.g producing a podcast, making a movie, telling your story with lego, digital photography skills, producing a video game and more. You'll find these as a downloadable pdf at the bottom of the page.
