Independent TD Mattie McGrath has encouraged all those who can to take part in some of the dozens of free events being organised in the county to celebrate National Heritage Week which runs until August 28th. Deputy McGrath was speaking as historical, cultural and family days are being planned in towns and villages in order to create a deep and rich appreciation of our national heritage:
“I would encourage everyone who can to take the time to go and visit one of the many events being organised this year.
A full list of the huge number of celebrations is available on the National Heritage website where they will find a county by county breakdown of everything that is being organised.
Within our own county there are over 50 events listed ranging from Walking Tours to Medieval History and Audio displays demonstrating the hidden treasures of the premier county.
This week is a golden opportunity to celebrate the great cultural wealth that still exists right across the Country.
I encourage everyone to go out and support the local events and to make this week a thriving success for Tipperary,” concluded Deputy McGrath.
