Ports, Past and Present Newsletter is out!

The February 2021 Newsletter for the Ports, Past and Present project is out now! Click here to read as it reveals the strength of our Welsh and Irish shared histories, telling the story of how a Welsh Chapel in Dublin provided services in the Welsh language, a meeting place for sailors and a hub for Dublin’s resident Welsh community for over 100 years.

The Ports, Past and Present project is part funded by the Irish Wales Co-operation Programme 2014-2020 and is exploring the cultures of the port communities of Dublin, Rosslare, Holyhead, Fishguard and Pembroke Dock.  Bringing their culture and heritage to public awareness, both within coastal communities and to increase visitor numbers and enhance visitor experiences.  The project publishes and online monthly Newsletter highlighting the fascinating heritage stories of these Port communities which have experienced shared histories for many years. 

The Ireland Wales Programme 2014-2020  is part of the European Territorial Co-operation (ETC) group of funds, which provides opportunities for regions in the EU to work together, to address common economic, environmental and social challenges.  The programme focuses on seeking solutions to shared challenges on both sides of the Irish sea, to improve the economic and sustainable development priorities of Ireland and Wales, in the areas of innovation, climate change and cultural & natural resources and heritage.

The Welsh Government manages the programme with partners, the Southern Regional Assembly (SRA) and the Department for Public Expenditure and Reform (DPER).  The overall value of the programme is €100m, utilising €79m from the European Union’s European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).  To find out more about the Ireland Wales programme and the list of projects click this link.
