Creative Ireland Fingal Consultation

Fingal “In Creative Conversation”



Over the period of the Creative Fingal Programme, Fingal County Council are keen to facilitate an on-going dialogue on creativity in Fingal among the community, creative practitioners and across a broad range of stakeholders in the arts, culture, heritage, sports, STEM and business sectors. Through the medium of film, these diverse conversations about creativity in Fingal will be recorded and shared online and in stakeholder communications over the course of the five year programme. This will build a digital repository of the developing, dynamic and unique creative culture of Fingal and reflect the views of the diverse range of people involved in our creative conversation.

Fingal Commemoration Programme 2018-2023

Fingal County Council is developing a Commemorations Programme for the period 2018-2023, when there will be many aspects of our past which need to be remembered and commemorated. These may form part of the Decade of Centenaries in which we will remember significant historical events that took place between 1918 and 1923, or may relate to other aspects of Fingal’s history and heritage. The Council is now embarking on a consultation process so that the people of Fingal can have their say on what we should remember and commemorate. This process will also encourage a discussion on how such commemorations can develop a deeper and more lasting engagement with our past.  

While many events, persons and themes related to the struggle for independence in the period 1918-1923 will be commemorated during the period 2018-2023, the Council also wishes to consider other significant events, persons or themes of relevance to Fingal and its communities, including from outside the Irish experience, which should be commemorated during the period 2018-2023. 

So why not give us your input on the Fingal Commemorations Programme 2018 -2023? Visit and complete the survey by 24 January 2018.
