Working with Communities - Our initiatives for 2019
In 2019, the Heritage Council's budget allocation will be directed towards achieving some of the objectives in our new Strategic Plan.
The Heritage Council would like to congratulate all of the recipients of the EYCH Community Grants Scheme in 2018. The great work completed in the interest of preserving and promoting heritage is testimony to the commitment of community groups and NGOs across the country. We will shortly release a video featuring some of these exceptional projects.
In 2019, the Heritage Council's budget
allocation will be directed towards achieving some of the objectives in our new
Strategic Plan. These include engaging young people with
heritage and inspiring the next generation of heritage custodians. We will
continue to work with communities working for heritage through our
programmes such as the Irish Walled Towns Network (IWTN), Collaborative Town Centre Heath Checks (CTCHC) and Adopt a Monument, but, for the
moment, we will not be opening a community grant scheme in 2019.
