Individuals and community groups in and neighbouring the southern Wicklow Mountains are invited to a community information evening next Thursday 23rd June in Rathdrum Library at 6.30pm.
This event is being organised to introduce a new European project ‘CUPHAT – Coastal Uplands: Heritage and Tourism’ which focuses on sustainable and regenerative heritage- based tourism in the coastal uplands of Ireland and Wales.
Supported by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland-Wales Cooperation programme, the project seeks to showcase the shared and distinctive heritages of the coastal uplands of Ireland and Wales bordering the Irish Sea.
CUPHAT focuses on areas outside the reach of traditional tourism offerings with four funded study locations in the Cambrian Mountains and Preseli
Hills in Wales, and the southern Wicklow Mountains and the Wexford portion of the Blackstairs Mountains in Ireland. #
Researchers from UCD School of Geography partnering with colleagues in Aberystwyth University and the Dyfed Archaeological Trust will work with local communities to develop tourism offerings in these areas and they would like your input to connect and co-create sustainable tourism offerings that meet the needs of the local community.
