In order to mark Heritage Week 2008, Public Libraries throughout Ireland will host various diverse events to celebrate the many aspects of our Heritage. Here in Youghal Library, we are happy to present two such events which we hope will interest the Public. There is no admission fee to either event and all are welcome to attend.

One of the events will explore the Medieval Archaeology of Youghal, which take place on Thursday, the 4th of September at 7pm. The presentation entitled “Beneath Our Feet”the Medieval Archaeology of Youghal” will be delivered by well known Youghal native, Daniel Noonan, Archaeologist , of Daniel Noonan and Associates. The presentation will take approximately 40 mins. with time for questions afterwards and should be most informative.

On Thursday, the 28th of August, Clifford Winser, of the National Coastguard Service who also lives locally, will deliver a presentation entitled “From Coast to Shore, Keeping our Waters Safe – the work of the Irish Coastguard Service”

Again, this will be a very interesting talk, as Clifford has vast experience of his subject, having devoted a lifetime to the Irish Coastguard Service. So for those of you interested in learning a little more about our unique Heritage, we invite you to make a note of both these events in your diaries. We are confident that attendees will not be disappointed!
