CKAS – Heritage Week 2020 August

Once again Heritage Week has come around; normally CKAS would have an event but Covid-19 means that we are far from ‘normal’.

However Heritage Week is proceeding albeit in different and interesting forms mainly online but with some limited ‘in-person’ events.

Therefore I thought I might take this opportunity to bring some  of the 2020 programme to your attention.

Have a look at to see the details of over 700 projects included in the programme.

Specifically I thought you might be interested in some projects / events with a ‘Kildare’ focus.
