Meath

Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018-2022

From the world-famous UNESCO World Heritage site Brú na Bóinne, which is home to Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, to the ancient seat of the High King of Ireland - the Hill of Tara, not to mention its vibrant Gaeltacht area, Meath has a vast cultural and historic well to draw creative inspiration from. The county’s cultural sector is a thriving one, with artists of diverse disciplines living and working there, while professional arts organisations, amateur and community groups all enhance the area’s immense cultural character.

With the Creative Ireland programme centred around the themes of identity, culture and citizenship, Meath’s part in the initiative’s five-year journey began in 2017 with its impressive plans, including the introduction of €100,000 in grant aid to enhance the Francis Ledwidge Centenary Grant Scheme, the Community Heritage Grant Scheme and the Community Arts Awards.
