The County Sligo Heritage Forum, facilitated by the Heritage Office, Sligo County Council is preparing a new County Heritage Plan for Sligo and is seeking your support and assistance in identifying the key priorities and opportunities for Sligo’s heritage over the next five years. 

County Sligo Heritage Forum is a heritage partnership between local government, state agencies, development agencies, farming organisations, education and training agencies and the community & voluntary sector.  All with an active interest in or responsibility for Sligo's heritage.

We want to know the aspects of Sligo’s Heritage that you value and want to see celebrated and conserved.  We are seeking your input in setting the priorities for Sligo’s Heritage Plan 2023 - 2027.
