Rock of Cashel: Tipperary's heritage protection receives boost under new Government strategy

The Government has approved Heritage Ireland 2030, a cross-Government Strategic Policy for Heritage that sets out a framework for the protection, conservation, promotion and management of Ireland’s heritage for the next decade and beyond.

The strategy lays out a roadmap for the best possible future for Irish heritage with a joined up approach at government, stakeholder and community levels. A comprehensive implementation plan is now being developed to deliver on its actions.

Tipperary County Council is tasked with the care and management of heritage assets in their ownership such as monuments, protected structures, county archives, museum collections, heritage gardens and parks.

Heritage Ireland 2030 will aim to strengthen the role of Tipperary County Council in the management, care and promotion of Ireland’s heritage and establish policies to underpin their work as custodians of many heritage resources. 

The principal themes of the strategy are communities, leadership and partnerships, reflecting the importance of ongoing collaboration between Government, communities, stakeholders, citizens and local authorities in delivering upon the objectives of this strategy.

The proposed framework sets out structures through which all of these groups can come together to advance the protection of Ireland’s heritage.

Recognising that responsibilities for Ireland’s heritage rest right across government, this structured framework will also enable the integration of heritage policy principles into decision-making across the whole of Government.

Heritage Ireland 2030 contains over 150 actions, each of which will be built upon and delivered within working groups.

An Implementation Plan assigning actions and timeframes to responsible parties will be developed within six months of the launch of Heritage Ireland 2030, elaborating on the formation of delivery structures and providing a clear roadmap for implementing actions.
