National Heritage Week

​National Heritage Week is an educational initiative organised by The Heritage Council to build public awareness of Irish heritage. It aims to promote and encourage the conservation of heritage across Ireland.

The 2018 Heritage Week will run from the 18 to the 26 August and this year's theme is "Share a story, make a connection". With millions of years of stories to share, Geological Survey Ireland will organise a number of events throughout the country. We compiled the 2018 programme of geological events either run by our staff or supported by Geological Survey Ireland.

The 2019 National Heritage Week will run from the 17 to the 25 August and this year's theme is "Pastimes, Past Times".

Visit the National Heritage Week website for inspiration and see the geology themed events listed.
