Kerry’s primary schools engage in amazing local heritage projects every year: climbing in and out of ringforts, exploring the history of their schools or village, researching landmark buildings near their school, recording native plants and birds, interviewing their grandparents, making history models – the children’s creativity and imagination is boundless. To showcase some of these fabulous projects, we have partnered up with Radio Kerry to create Heritage Hunters, a series of ten short podcasts which are being broadcast on Jerry O’Sullivan’s Kerry Today throughout 2023.

Kerry Heritage Hunters is a creative collaboration of Radio Kerry, the Kerry Archaeological & Historical Society, Kerry County Museum and Kerry County Council. This primary school initiative is kindly supported by the Heritage Council of Ireland, The Education Centre Tralee and the Sound and Vision fund of Coimisiún na Meán.

We would like to invite you to join the pupils of Spa NS going oyster fishing in Fenit, climb to the top of Blennerville Windmill with the pupils of Blennerville NS and travel on the Ghost train to Croker with the pupils of Glenbeigh NS.
