Lacken Heritage Interpretative Panel.
Thurs July 30th, members of Community, local Councillors Patsy Glennon, Gerry O Neill, Avril Cronin assembled in Lacken for the unveiling of the Lacken Heritage Interpretative Panel.
This project was the combined effort of the Wicklow Uplands Council and Lacken Development Association. The research for the panel was carried out by Alfie Zeller and Diana Gallagher and displays many examples of our rich natural and cultural heritage.
All the features were vividly brought to life by the renowned artist Paul Francis, The Interpretive Panel now stands at the heart of the village where it has attracted keen interest from the many hill-walkers and tourists visiting the area in recent months.
Also in attendance at the unveiling were Conor Hipwell (Liaison Officer), Brian Dunne, Evelyn Murry (Wicklow Partnership) and Fiona Jones and Edel McGurk from Lacken N.S. (See Pictures Here)
Eco Congregation Ireland recently awarded Blessington, Lacken, Valleymount Churches an Awareness Certificate for their efforts to encourage sustainable living and bio-diversity in the Parish.
It is hoped to continue with this programme in the coming months and work together towards answering the call of Pope Francis to care for the earth and promote Climate Justice.
