County all set to mark its heritage


HERITAGE Week 2019, which takes place nationwide from August 17th to 25th, will showcase the joy, diversity and accessibility that can be found within our country’s rich heritage.

As a nation of storytellers, all of our heritage is linked to stories of people, places, moments and things.

Events taking place in Waterford include an exploration of meadows & marshes in Mount Congreve Gardens with a wildlife detective, a prison quest at Reginald’s Tower, a talk on the Metal Man, Tramore and Waterford Harbour Countdown System, and the tragedies in Tramore Bay over the past 250 years and lots lots more.

With over 2,000 events taking place throughout the country, there is undoubtedly an event for everyone, no matter their age or interests.

This year the Heritage Council’s chosen theme for Heritage Week is the “celebration of pastimes and past times”.
