It's National Heritage Week in Ireland!

August 20-28 is National Heritage Week in Ireland. What is it? From the Heritage Council:

The aim of National Heritage Week is to build awareness and education about our heritage thereby encouraging its conservation and preservation. 

Each year many national and hundreds of local community organisations participate by organising events throughout the country. Many of the events that take place during the week are free and the programme highlights the abundance of great work that is carried out in all communities in Ireland to preserve and promote our natural, built and cultural heritage.

This is from 2010:

It sounds like a good week to be in Ireland (but what week isn't, really?)

There are sure to be some good write-ups about the goings on. Keep an eye peeled and share here what you learn!
