Bord na Móna Celebrates 75 Years of Industrial Heritage this National Heritage Week
Explore Bord na Móna’s Lough Boora Discovery Park as it celebrates 75 years of Industrial Heritage this National Heritage Week. To mark Bord na Móna’s expansion beyond peat harvesting, National Heritage Week kicks off with a special commemorative event taking place in the stunning Lough Boora Discovery Park, Co Offaly on August 22nd 2016 from 12pm-4pm.
Lough Boora Discovery Park is the award-winning public amenity that showcases Bord na Móna’s commitment to biodiversity and peatland rehabilitation.
Come along and celebrate, share and enjoy 75 years of Industrial Heritage with a fun-filled family day featuring entertainment for all ages and artisan food stalls filled with mouth-watering local produce to whet the appetite. Keeping the kids entertained on the day will be the Super Sticky Glitter Bomb arts and crafts workshop, innovative windmill making workshops, a butterfly and dragonfly crafts area where children will be using recycled materials, super spy scavenger hunts, bouncing castles, a magic show and toy peddle tractors for the younger attendees. For some educational fun children will also learn how to grow their own Sunflowers in the colourful gardening section.
Visitors to Lough Boora Discovery Park will also get the opportunity to become familiar with historical Bord na Móna machinery from eras past with the Bord na Móna Heartland Expo looking back on and celebrating over 75 years of history in the local community.
National Heritage Week takes place from August 22nd to 30th. This year the week-long celebration will play tribute to the Irish industrial and design heritage that has paved the way for the world we live in today.
Bord na Móna is a responsible and progressive Irish company with an unrivalled heritage which we are celebrating during National Heritage Week.
