Heritage Trail brochure dispatched to local schools

Balbriggan Heritage Trail is on the way and will be installed in the town in the near future.

A brochure which accompanies the Trail was launched during Heritage Week this August and is available free of charge from Balbriggan Tourist office on George's Square.

The brochure contains a map of the Trail and illustrates the rich and varied local heritage and historical events.

Beautifully designed, it proves to be an excellent document not only for tourists and visitors to the town but also for local schools.

Balbriggan is one of the most multi-cultural towns in Ireland with 25% of the population being non-native Irish but also much of the Irish population of the town is not originally from the local area.

The authors of the Heritage Trail and brochure, David Sorensen and Petra Skyvova, are hopeful that their project will foster and boost an interest in the local heritage.

Each of the 11 primary and five post-primary schools in the locality received a batch of the brochures for their pupils.

The brochures were gratefully received by the Deputy Principal of Scoil Chormaic, Alan Weston who noted that it will be an excellent aid for the local history part of the school curriculum.
