Heritage Week Award for Green Door Festival

Last week The Heritage Council presented their National Heritage Week Event Awards which showcased the best of National Heritage Week 2015. The Awards recognise the fantastic work of all the event organisers and volunteers that take part. We were delighted to attend the Awards ceremony on behalf of Inspirational Homes Leitrim who were awarded runner up for 'Green Door 2015' in the Hidden Heritage Award Category.

Inspirational Homes Leitrim documents and makes accessible the diverse buildings tucked away in our landscape here in Co. Leitrim. It creates awareness and shares experiences, knowledge and skills among builders, homeowners, architects, self-builders and anyone with an interest in sustainable building in Ireland. Inspirational Homes organises and hosts the Green Door Festival which is a festival of Rural Architecture & Design. It is a chance to see inside homes, meet the homeowners, architects, designers and builders behind the restorations, extensions and new builds; it is a weekend where we are encouraged to look at our built environment, our local heritage, inherited and new built vernacular and consider its impact on our lives and landscape. The festival opens up debate, brings people and ideas together and inspires innovation and consideration for the future of rural living, building, planning, architecture and design.
