Following two well-supported weekend tours during 2017 to visit industrial heritage sites in Armagh and East Tyrone in May, and Limerick and Environs in October, thoughts have now turned to the organisation of two major events in the coming year.

A one-day seminar on Sustainable Cultural Tourism is planned for Spring 2018, to be followed in the Autumn by a major conference dealing with the Promotion of Industrial Sites.

The Annual General Meeting of the Industrial Heritage Association of Ireland will be held, as usual, in May.

Firm dates and further particulars of the 2018 events will be announced in due course.
