Heritage Week 2019- August 17th to 25th

Welcome to Heritage Week in County Monaghan. Coordinated by the Heritage Council, National Heritage Week is part of European Heritage Days which promote Europe’s common cultural heritage and is running from August 17th to 25th 2019.

Heritage Week, Ireland’s most popular cultural event, will see half a million people participate in over 2,200 events in 2019.

In Monaghan, the Monaghan County Council Heritage Office helps to facilitate and promote engagement in Heritage Week.

This year’s theme “Pastimes/Past Times” has shaped the type of events on offer. There are craft demonstrations and classes to partake in, as well as re-enactments of past times, nature activities and outdoor explorations to enjoy.

Event Booking is available on Eventbrite.
