Working with Communities - Our initiatives for 2019

Nuacht /

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.
