The heritage of County Clare
The heritage of County Clare provides us with clues to our past and how our society and environment has evolved over time. It creates a sense of place and culture and strengthens County Clare’s unique identity. It is important in itself as a finite resource that cannot be replaced. It also plays a critical role in supporting and cultivating a vibrant community and voluntary sector, building social capital and in underpinning socio-economic development. The Clare Heritage Officer Programme is committed to ensuring that the heritage of our county, is protected, enhanced and conserved for future generations.
