We revisit our 2016 Heritage Week project with this video ‘An Age Old Attraction’, a photographic exhibition of late nineteenth and early twentieth century images of the Glendalough Valley.
Due to social restrictions on social gatherings this year (2020), rather than inviting communities to host Heritage Week events, the Heritage Council has invited communities around the country to undertake projects that explore a topic associated with this year’s theme – ‘Heritage and Education: Learning from our Heritage’.
The new approach is designed to promote the sharing of experience and knowledge. It was suggested that groups revisit or build on a heritage project which may already have been started and the Glendalough Heritage Forum has created this video of our 2016 exhibition to allow a broader audience experience these beautiful images of Glendalough from a bygone era.
These images appear courtesy of the National Library of Ireland.
