  • Projects submitted to us by noon on Thursday, 13th August will be shared on the Heritage Week website before the beginning of National Heritage Week 2020.

  • We will continue to accept projects after this date and all projects submitted by Sunday, 30th August will be considered for a National Heritage Week Award.

  • To ensure timely inclusion on the Heritage Week website, we ask that you submit all relevant information in your listing, including; presentations, PDFs, video links, event details and registration links.

  • We recommend that you draft your submission in a Word document and copy and paste your submission into the form to avoid losing any of your work in the event that a technical issue occurs during the upload process.

It's a Wrap - Heritage Week 2020.

With Heritage Week 2020 now behind us, the Heritage Council would like to extend a huge thank you to project organisers, event organisers, supporters and members of the public who took part in National Heritage Week 2020.

Adapting to this year's approach was no easy feat but everyone responded by sharing innovative and engaging heritage projects. Many of the committed and loyal heritage heroes, across every county in Ireland, adapted to keep Heritage Week alive. In addition, many people – who are new to heritage – got creative and involved.

We have more than 800 projects shared on heritageweek.ie from across the country, celebrating our theme 'Heritage and Education: Learning from our Heritage'. They are a vibrant mix of research projects, videos, podcasts, online events and in-person activities. You can search the full collection of projects here.

Remember, if you began a project but have not yet submitted it to us, we would still love for you to share it - all projects shared with us via the Project Organisers Portal by 30th August will be considered for a heritage award.
