Growing interest in protecting Irish heritageMonday, 23 July 2007 09:03
A new study on the value people in Ireland place on heritage shows that the public are becoming increasingly concerned about the need to safeguard traditions.
The study also found that a majority of those surveyed called for increased funding, and that they placed heritage protection as the fifth most important priority for public spending.
The research was carried out by Lansdowne Market Research.
The Chief Executive of the Heritage Council, Michael Starrett, will present the full findings of the study at the Royal Irish Academy later today. We have many sites in and around Bruff to protect and cherish, from the magnificent remains of Ballygrennan Castle to the fine Church of Ireland in Bruff, from the Binn Lisin to the Stone Circles and so many more. We neglect at great risk to our local heritage.
