Education & Outreach

Since 2007 the Society has run an Education and Outreach Programme, which is aimed at fostering and promoting an interest in Kerry’s culture and heritage amongst young and not so young people.

To date many, many primary, secondary, third-level and lifelong learning students have worked on several different projects. Each programme generates a feature, which is published in The Kerry Magazine.

A great variety of subject matter has been explored, ranging from “Aghadoe 850: A Collaborative Learning Journey”; “Searching for Roots in Kenmare”; “Historic Walk of Tralee”; a cross-generational project entitled “Crossing the Generations”; “the Irish Harp-Official Symbol of Ireland”; “Kerry Explorer Tom Crean comes to Knockaderry National School” to name but a few.
