Heritage from Home Online Talks

Find out about your Heritage from the comfort of your own home this winter. Starting 26 January, and throughout February and March, Libraries NI will be running a series of online talks, events and workshops on four topics:

• Ancient Ireland: history & myth
• The environment: nature and landscape
• Your family, your history
• Partition: how it affected us

All these events will be delivered on Zoom and can be followed on PC, laptop, iPad and on most smartphones.

It is essential to book, so if you would like to attend an event, please email e: [email protected] , specifying which talks you would like to attend and we will reply with a link and basic instructions on how to connect.
