The Heritage Council, through the Irish Walled Towns Network & Adopt a Monument Scheme, working with Garry Kelly (GK Media/Digital Training Hub) has developed a 4-week Digital Skills training course for Community Heritage Groups and Heritage Practitioners from Irish Walled Town Network member towns and Adopt a Monument Groups.

The course will be delivered online and is free of charge.

The workshops are LIVE from 11 am to 1 pm over 4 consecutive Tuesdays.
