National Heritage Week takes place across the country every year with many national and local organisations coming together to celebrate and build awareness for our heritage. Taking place typically in the third week of August, many heritage events and projects showcase the abundance of work carried out in our communities to preserve and promote our natural, built and cultural heritage.
In County Longford, Heritage Week is an opportunity to explore our history, culture and nature through a variety of projects, walks, talks, workshops and events held by communities and local groups.
