The Heritage Council is once again delighted to announce the Heritage Awards, showcasing the best of National Heritage Week and recognising the fantastic work of all the event organisers and volunteers that take part.
The 2016 Award categories are as follows:
Do you know someone who always goes the extra mile for heritage? Nominate an individual or organisation who makes an outstanding contribution to the protection and promotion of heritage in your local area. Anyone can nominate a Heritage Hero.
Did your event shine a light on Ireland’s hidden heritage? This award is open to event organisers who successfully explored lesser known aspects of Ireland’s heritage during National Heritage Week. All National Heritage Week Event Organisers can enter.
Did you organise an event that reached out to new audiences? Maybe you made your event wheelchair accessible, offered multilingual tours or created an event especially for teenagers. This award is open to event organisers who helped more people enjoy National Heritage Week. All National Heritage Week Event Organisers can enter.
Cool for Kids
Did you organise a great family event? This award is open to event organisers who encouraged children and families to participate in National Heritage Week. All National Heritage Week Event Organisers can enter.
Entry is free. The closing date for entries is midnight Friday 9 September 2016. Recipients will be honoured at a Heritage Council Awards Day.
