Heritage Week 2020


Join Scéalta Beo and Creative Ardagh online for three days during National Heritage Week when we will show you all you need to explore your townland; delve into its history; take a walk; and look at your local heritage close up.

Using this as inspiration we will then guide you to create your own art and writing in two short workshops suitable for all ages - children and adults.

Share your creations with us and we will feature it in our online gallery
