Local Authority Waters Programme (LAWPRO)
A national story-writing competition was launched in April by the Local Authority Waters Programme (LAWPRO), in partnership with The Heritage Council and The Heritage Officer Programme, Inland Fisheries Ireland and Waterways Ireland, to capture stories and memories associated with a local waterbody - a river, stream, canal, lake, estuary, the sea, a wetland or a groundwater feature. Stories bring local places to life and help us to remember and cherish what makes those places so special and to pass it on to future generations. An online publication will be produced for National Heritage Week 2020 showcasing the winning stories. This will be shared through social media channels and local press release.
