For National Heritage Week 2020 (15-23 Aug), the Maigue Rivers Trust invited people living in the Maigue Catchment to take pictures of their local heritage, nature, built, crafts, skills, art, songs, and more. The Trust gave people a platform to share what they cherish with a broader audience, and the Trust wants to learn more about what we have here in the Maigue catchment.
Due to Covid restrictions the festival has been re-imagined to include nature walks and limited numbered workshops.
