National Heritage Week 2015 will run from August 22nd to 30th.
National Heritage Week is coordinated by The Heritage Council and its aim is to build awareness and education about our heritage thereby encouraging its conservation and preservation.
Each year, during the last week of August, many national and hundreds of local community organisations participate by organising events throughout the country. Many of the events that take place during the week are free and the programme highlights the abundance of great work that is carried out in all communities in Ireland to preserve and promote our natural, built and cultural heritage.

Starting at 11a.m, Saturday the 22nd and 29th August outside the Courthouse on Main Street, this tour takes approx. 90 mins and highlights the historic aspects/features around Carrickmacross.
