Public consultation on draft national Heritage Plan closing on 31st March 2019.

The Architectural Conservation Officer of Kerry County Council has visited secondary school students all over the county to meet students to ensure  Kerry’s young people have a strong voice in the consultation process.

Students from First Year to Leaving Certificate have been involved in this county-wide discussion and have been able to submit their ideas and observations directly to the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht through the use of social media in their schools.

Circa 250 submissions have been made by the young people of Kerry to date and this number continues to grow as more schools and students become involved.

Kerry County Council is delighted with the enthusiasm and welcome afforded by school management and staff to engage in this process.  The Council is particularly grateful to the school students who have taken part in the survey and consultation process.
