Galway Heritage Festival 2014

In conjunction with National Heritage Week, Dúchas Na Gaillimhe – Galway Civic Trust, would like to invite you to our 2014 Heritage Festival. We have a varied programme of guided walks, craft demonstrations, talks and exhibitions which explore and promote the heritage of Galway.

This year we have made a special effort to ensure that all the family have some fun! We have a family tour of Renmore Military Barracks Museum and our Beach Exploration will teach us all about the shellfish and creepy crawlies that make the beach their home! Or visit the Zoology Museum, at NUI, Galway and take part in our mystery Quiz.

Come and see us at the Hall of the Red Earl to learn more about our traditional crafts with demonstrations and enjoy the sound of the harp echoing through the heart of medieval Galway.

Members of the Irish Patchwork Society, Western Branch will be giving demonstrations of how to do patchwork and quilting in the Hall of the Red Earl, opposite the Druid Theatre, on Tuesday August 26th from 10am -12 noon and from 2pm - 4pm.

In addition there will be a small exhibition of members' work.

We invite you to come along and see what we do and how we do it!"
