National Heritage Week this year is little over two months away, taking place from Saturday 17th to Sunday 25th August, 2019. So far for the County of Cork over 120 events have been registered with an expectation that Heritage Week 2019 will see over 2,000 events around the Country. All proposed events uploaded to prior to June 28th 2019will feature in the official County Cork Heritage Week Events Guide this year. It is hoped that 2019 will indeed see a wonderful line-up and a great number of events, across the County. Indeed, the popularity of National Heritage Week is growing enormously in recent years as more and more people take stock of and value the heritage that surrounds and connects us all. The Theme for Heritage Week 2019 is ‘Pastimes and Past Times’, encouraging people to take a stroll through our local history and explore how our free time has evolved in often fascinating ways from sports and storytelling to music and craft. Heritage Week is coordinated by the Heritage Council and is part of European Heritage Days which promotes Europe’s cultural heritage across the Union – a week very much to look forward to.
