Exciting New Heritage Week Events at Lismore Heritage Centre

Heritage Week will be held around Ireland 20th-28th August 2011 and Lismore Heritage Centre has some exciting new events specially planned for children and families.

Saturday 20th August is National Tell Tale Day and the Heritage Centre invites children to uncover The Story of Lismore- our town’s amazing history- through art, drama and storytelling. The Story of Lismore will be held 10.00am-12.00pm on 20th August. It is suitable for primary school age children. Booking is essential as places are strictly limited. There is an admission cost of €3.00 to cover the cost of supplies; each child will craft a souvenir ‘Book of Lismore.’

We know it’s not fair to let kids have all the fun so adults are cordially invited to take part in our Discover Lismore Treasure Trail; a great fun way to uncover the town of Lismore. Pick up a Trail pack from Lismore Heritage Centre at any time during Heritage Week and set off to solve your clues. Return with the completed questions to claim your Scavenger Cert and be entered on our Facebook Wall of Fame. Bring the children and do it as a family or bring your friends and make a race of it. The Discover Lismore Treasure Trail is completely free of charge. Bring a camera if you can!

  1. Unfortunately I was too busy with my own Glenribbeen Eco Lodge and the Heritage Week Glenribbeen BatWatch to get to any of the many Heritage events in Lismore - but our guests did and we heard great things!! Well done to all concerned.
