Learn about Balbriggan’s rich heritage

March 25, 2020 0

Coronavirus may have us all in lockdown and what better time to learn about Balbriggan’s rich heritage. The Balbriggan Heritage Trail was launched back in April 2019.   Authors David Sorensen and Petra Skyvova in conjunction with Balbriggan Tourist committee were hopeful that the project would foster and boost an interest in local heritage.  

Eight information boards were strategically placed around the town and the Balbriggan coastline detailing; Water on Balbriggan Mills, Hamilton’s and the Founding of Balbriggan, The Sack of Balbriggan, Viaduct and the arrival of the railway, Life around Balbriggan Harbour, Stockings for the Queen, The Banks and Maritime Balbriggan.

The brochure contains a map of the Trail and illustrates the rich and varied local heritage and historical events. Beautifully designed, it proves to be an excellent document not only for tourists and visitors to the town but also for local schools. If you haven’t had time to check out the Heritage Trail check out the accompanying brochure below.
