The Heritage Council, coordinator of National Heritage Week (August 18 to 26 ), has issued a call for people to get involved and promote Heritage Week in Mayo by becoming a county ambassador. The Heritage Council ‘County Ambassador Volunteer Programme’ seeks to recruit volunteers in every county. Located in the local Tourism Information Office throughout the week, the role of the county ambassador will be to provide tourists with information on what is happening in the local area as part of National Heritage Week.
Training and support will be provided by the Heritage Council and Fáilte Ireland to all volunteers the week commencing August 13. If you are interested in becoming a county ambassador for the week, log on to www.heritageweek.ie, the deadline to apply is Friday August 10.
