Explore Your Local Heritage (2)

This education and outreach initiative invites all primary schools in Kerry to explore their local heritage and share their discoveries. We would like you to take your school building as the focal point and research the hidden history and heritage of your locality. The project culminates in an online video featuring all participating schools.

Watch last year’s video and be inspired:


Explore Your Local Heritage is an annual classroom-based competition open to all Kerry primary schools. The competition is a creative collaboration of Kerry Archaeological & Historical Society, Kerry County Museum and Kerry County Council and is is kindly supported by The Education Centre Tralee and the Heritage in Schools Initiative by the Heritage Council of Ireland.
