Dublin Port Fest Events at Heritage Week 2022

August 9, 2022

Dublin features in a new film and exhibition exploring the histories, life and culture of five port towns in Ireland and Wales set to be released during Heritage Week 2022.

These events have been produced by Aberystwyth University and the University of Wales Trinity Saint Davids as part of ‘Ports, Past and Present’, an international project led by University College Cork (UCC) which explores the history and cultural heritage of the ports.

Project leader Professor Claire Connolly from University College Cork said: “The Ports, Past and Present project frames voices, images and stories from across the five ports, enabling new forms of engagement with a shared past.”
