Fingal
Culture and Creativity Plan 2017

Boasting an 88km coastline of natural beauty, waterways, landscape and wildlife, Fingal’s rich heritage stretches back thousands of years, it encompasses the passage tombs of Bremore, the medieval settlements of Swords and Lusk and the ancient castles of Malahide and Ardgillan. The county has strong horticultural, agricultural and fishing traditions and enjoys a rich cultural heritage of local history, music and folklore.

Its idyllic coastline, covering Howth to north of Balbriggan, is home to three large protected estuaries and salt marsh habitats as well as 13 beautiful beaches.

From a Creative Fingal Fund to support the development of creative and cultural initiatives, to the exciting plans for a new civic and cultural centre in Swords, the whole community can look forward to harnessing its creativity.

With the Creative Ireland programme centred around the themes of identity, culture and citizenship, Fingal’s part in the initiative’s five-year journey begins with its plans for 2017. From a Creative Fingal Fund to support the development of creative and cultural initiatives, to the exciting plans for a new civic and cultural centre in Swords, the whole community can look forward to harnessing its creativity.
