#HeritageWeek2021 welcomed by Minister Noonan

Today marks the start of #HeritageWeek2021! And it's the second Heritage Week taking place in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Like last year, communities have responded and adapted so well and with the support of our incredible network of Local Authority Heritage Officers we have a blended diverse programme that would rival any year.


Further info on what's happening nationally can be found here: Home | National Heritage Week 14-22 August 2021.

At a local level, heritage groups and organisers, families, communities, and individuals across #Carlow and #Kilkenny have responded to this year’s call to ‘Open the door to heritage’ by creating and sharing projects and events that are free to explore throughout #HeritageWeek2021.

See details of all 35 projects here https://www.heritageweek.ie/projects?q=&where%5B%5D=carlow&where%5B%5D=kilkenny#listings I'd like to wish all participating communities, organisations, and Councils all the very best over the week ahead and I hope to meet some of you over the course of #HeritageWeek2021
