Heritage Week Awards - Cavan Awarded two Heritage Week Awards
Updated: Oct 21, 2020
The Heritage Office of Cavan County Council would like to congratulate our two award winners in this Year's Heritage Week Awards.
Congratulations to Killeshandra Tidy Towns Heritage Group on winning the The Heritage on Your Doorstep Award
This project sees the Killeshandra Census of 1911 being researched and used to sketch the town as it appeared at that time. The Killeshandra Tidy Town Heritage Group is producing sketches, old photographs and census records detailing the houses, shops, and public buildings and people who lived in the town. The result will prove a valuable resource for learning about the town’s cultural and built heritage and for genealogy research for visitors.
Congratulations also goes to Cavan's Historic Graveyard Network who undertook a project 'Meet The Caretakers'. Three Caretakers of Historic Graveyards took us on a fascinating virtual tour of historic graveyards.
The efforts of individuals, families and community groups across Ireland to ensure the preservation, protection and promotion of Ireland’s built, natural and cultural heritage were recognised today (20.10.20) at the National Heritage Awards 2020. Hosted by the Heritage Council, the event took place virtually and was presented by RTÉ broadcaster, Anne Cassin.
