Water Heritage Day and River Derry Bubbles Project

The River Derry Bubbles Project, now in its fourth year, invites you to share Water Heritage Day on its Facebook page. This is the last but very important day of Ireland’s Heritage Week. This year, the Heritage Council, the lead organisers of Heritage Week have asked for projects and events to have an online presence during the current Covid19 pandemic.

Between 12 noon and 5pm, simply logon to Facebook and become a fan of the River Derry Bubbles Project page. Please post your photos, stories, or drawings of the River Derry onto the page to help celebrate our local river and all that it has to offer. Interesting videos will also be posted live during the day.

The River Derry rises near Hacketstown, Co. Carlow, and then enters Co. Wicklow as it flows through Crossbridge, Tinahely, Tomnafinnoge Woods, and then onto Shillelagh, close to Kerry Foods. After this the River Derry returns to Co. Carlow as it flows through Clonegal, passing Huntington Castle, and finally Kildavin where it joins the River Slaney.

Please stay safe at all times if you’re near the water and please follow current Covid19 guidelines. Stay with The Bubbles on Water Heritage Day.

This online event has been funded by the Local Area Waters Community Office and kindly supported by Tinahely Community Projects and Tinahely Tidy Towns.
