Ancient Connections

Ancient Connections

Ancient Connections is a cross-border arts, heritage, and sustainable tourism project carried out through the Ireland-Wales co-operation programme. This partnership between Pembrokeshire County Council, Wexford County Council, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, and Visit Wexford is funded by the European Regional Development Fund. Ancient Connections revives and celebrates the ancient links between communities in North Pembrokeshire and Wexford, from the Stone Age through to Mediaeval pilgrimage, and more recent history such as the first human flight across the Irish Sea in 1912. The project’s aim is to motivate both communities to rediscover their shared heritage and be mentors for one another, building new friendships to create a stronger sense of identity and place that will flourish in years to come. The project includes creative activity in both regions including commissioning of new artworks, revival of traditional skills, promoting pilgrimage in the modern world, archaeological digs, storytelling and gathering, live music and schools projects, and mentoring and support for businesses and community projects.
