Fondúireacht an Bhlascaoid

Fondúireacht an Bhlascaoid was set up in 1985 to preserve and promote the heritage of the Blasket Island, with the aim of making it a national heritage park. Through political influence we instigated the OPW setting up The Blasket Heritage Centre in Dunquin , which was opened in 1994. We organise a Blasket celebration every year since 1996 in the Blasket Heritage Centre,” Ceiliúradh an Bhlascaoid”, over a weekend in September.
