Cultural Heritage

What is cultural heritage you may ask. Well cultural heritage can be difficult to define. Cultural heritage is based on aspects of our past. Cultural heritage includes folklore, folk-life, language and genealogy.  These elements reflect our history, and can evoke special meaning for us as individuals or as members of a community. Cultural heritage forms our individual, local and national identities. It shapes relationship with our neighbours and with other communities.

Most people maintain a strong sense of their own cultural identity.
We have  pride in our county, our towns, villages, parishes and townlands.
