Fingal Heritage Plan

Fingal has a rich heritage dating back thousands of years, from the passage tombs of Bremore to medieval church settlements such as Swords and Lusk and castles like Malahide and Ardgillan. Fingal also has a unique natural heritage of coastline, waterways, landscape and wildlife, and a cultural heritage of local history, music and folklore. The Fingal Heritage Plan 2011 – 2017 sets out a range of objectives to protect, manage and promote Fingal’s Heritage.

Fingal Heritage Plan 2018 -2023

Fingal County Council is preparing the Fingal Heritage Plan 2018 -2023, a strategy to protect, manage and promote our heritage.  As part of the process, we want to hear from people and organisations with an interest in Fingal’s heritage. 

Whether you're from Blanchardstown or Balbriggan, Swords or Santry, Porterstown or Portmarnock, heritage gives each local area in Fingal its identity and sense of place. Our heritage not only has a strong conservation and amenity value, but also contributes to the economy through tourism and by making Fingal an attractive place to work and locate a business. And our heritage is there to be experienced and enjoyed as part of everyday life by everyone in the community.

Fingal has one of the largest, fastest growing, most ethnically diverse and youngest populations in Ireland. Our heritage is a valuable asset that needs to be cared for and managed and everyone has an important role to play.

The draft Fingal Heritage Plan 2018 -2023 will go on public display shortly and you will have a chance to have your say.

The current Fingal Heritage Plan 2011-2017 is available to download below.
