National Heritage Week 2020 15-23 August

National Heritage Week this year has moved from event based to a project format due to COVID-19 restrictions. The theme this year is ‘Heritage and Education: Learning from our Heritage’. To mark Heritage Week in Kilteevan three short projects were submitted to the Heritage Council and these can now be viewed on their website at the following links.


1. Remembering teachers who taught in Kilteevan schools from their memorials

The project focuses on the teachers who taught in schools in Kilteevan Parish and who are named on memorials in Kilteevan graveyard. It records where they taught, the position they held and their years of service together with some genealogical data.

2.Back to the drawing board with a teacher from Kilteevan

The project traces the family history of a teacher who was born in Kilteevan, who taught in a local school in the 1860s and who disappeared from the local record until 1911. His story is explored within this timeframe.


3. Bringing Kilteevan Schools’ Folklore Collection to the parish audience

The project investigates the background to the Schools’ Collection, revisits the material submitted from Kilteevan School and explores the digitized Collection at www.dú
