Heritage Plan Open Day

Waterways Ireland is hosting their third annual Heritage Plan Open Day on Wednesday December 5th, from 12-7pm.  At this event, being held at Áras an Mhuilinn, Mount St,  Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, you can review all the actions of the Heritage Plan that were progressed in 2018.  ​

This will also be a great opportunity to meet staff from Waterways Ireland.  Chat face to face about potential projects, ideas and support we can offer our stakeholders including our 2019 Heritage Grant Scheme.  Our CEO, Dawn Livingstone, will also be present on the day.  If you wish to have one on one time with Dawn please reserve one of our 8 dedicated time slots (1:30-3:30pm) by clicking this Doodle link. This is an open event so please circulate this invite to any people you feel would be interested in attending.
