Discover Your Place: Become A Heritage Keeper. The Heritage Keeps Programme is run in partnership with Burrenbeo Trust.

What is the story of your place? Are there local monuments or historic places that you would like to learn more about or visit? How was the local landscape shaped – what are the significant land features or water bodies? What kinds of plants and animals live in your place? Are there particular local customs and cultures? Where is their origin?

‘Heritage Keepers’ is a free programme for schools or communities that will enable them to work together to explore the built, natural, and cultural heritage of their local place and then plan action or actions to enhance their place. The ‘Heritage Keepers’ programme will initially be offered to a limited number of schools and communities nationwide in Spring 2022, through a series of five 2-hour workshops. In-person, online and blended learning options will be made available and there are also plans to offer teachers and community facilitators the chance to become ‘Heritage Keepers’ programme trainers.
