Applications are now open for Adopt a Monument 2019.

Is there a much loved monument in your area that you would like to learn more about? The Heritage Council are seeking applications from community groups across Ireland for their Adopt a Monument scheme.

The scheme is a way of bringing monuments into the heart of your community. Our heritage is rich and diverse so a monument can be anything including ringforts, lime kilns, sites associated with the travelling community, or modern sites. 

For communities, the Adopt a Monument Scheme offers a way of promoting pride in our monuments. It also offers opportunities to develop and understand the story of your locality and to work collaboratively together. From mentoring and training to assistance with funding applications and community events, the Heritage Council works in partnership to help to develop a deeper understanding of the monument and its place in the landscape and the team work with the communities to create and implement bespoke plans for each monument.

Application forms (see link below to webpage) must be submitted to: by 28th February 2019
