My Mayo Competition


As we all, in these times, have been reconnecting with our local places, we want you to tell us about your favourite place or aspect of your heritage that is important to you.

Our heritage is all around us, it is part of who we are. It is our landscapes, rivers, lakes and bogs, our wildflower meadows and hedgerows, our fairy forts, holy wells and monuments, our historic towns and villages. It includes our customs, traditions, folklore, songs and games.

Choose your favourite place, feature or tradition and let us know why it is special to you. You can send in a photograph, a drawing, a story, a poem or anything that conveys what it means to you.

Prizes will be awarded in 3 categories: Junior (Under 10); Youth (10 to 18); and Adult (18 +). A selection of Entries will be chosen for inclusion in a publication entitled ‘My Mayo’.

Send your entries by email to heritage@mayococo.ie or by post to Mayo Heritage Office, Aras an Chontae, Castlebar, Co. Mayo by Friday 25th September 2020
