Ireland’s inland waterways are important parts of our transport and industrial heritage. They hold aesthetic, recreational and spiritual values, as well as important habitats for many forms of wildlife.

Results of Research on Heritage Awareness Released

Research carried out by Behaviour and Attitudes last month on behalf of the Heritage Council had some good news about people’s interest in and involvement in heritage locally. Despite the increasingly fragmented nature of our media and the growing pull towards a more individualistic lifestyle we still find time to contribute to our places, be it volunteering in towns, villages or more rural settings and have a growing understanding of the value of heritage as it contributes to our identify, well-being and economy.
