Fáilte Romhat

Fáilte romhat go dtí suíomh idirlín Oidhreachta Domhanda Éireann na Roinne Ealaíon, Oidhreachta agus Gaeltachta. Tá sé d’aidhm againn acmhainn luachmhar faisnéise a sholáthar maidir le láithreáin Oidhreachta Domhanda agus Clár Oidhreachta Domhanda na hÉireann.

Tá súil againn go mbainfidh tú taitneamh as cuairt ar ár suíomh idirlín agus go bhfaighidh tú tuiscint bhreise ar chúrsaí Oidhreachta Domhanda ó thaobh na hÉireann de chomh maith.

 

Láithreán Oidhreachta Domhanda:Brú na Bóinne

Bhí Brú na Bóinne, nó The Bend of the Boyne, ina lárionad tábhachtach le haghaidh deasghnátha agus cúrsaí sóisialta agus eacnamaíocha leis na mílte bliain. Tá cáil idirnáisiúnta air mar gheall ar na tuamaí pasáiste sármhaisithe Neoiliteacha atá ann, agus is líonmhaire na samplaí den ealaíon mheigiliteach atá ann ná in aon áit eile san Eoraip. Aithnaíodh a luach uilíoch in 1993 nuair a ainmníodh mar Láithreán Oidhreachta Domhanda de chuid UNESCO é.

Láithreán Oidhreachta Domhanda: Sceilig Mhichil

Sárshampla ar fad is ea Sceilg Mhichíl de luathlonnaíocht reiligiúnach, agus ar go leor bealaí, is sampla ar leith ar fad é. Lonnaíodh ar charraig phirimidiúil san aigeán d’aon turas é, agus caomhnaíodh é mar gheall ar an gcomhshaol fíorshuntasach a bhí timpeall air. Tugann an mainistir seo, a bhfuil bail mhaith uirthi, léargas iontach dúinn san eagrú, sna h-éachtanna i gcúrsaí ailtireachta agus ins an slí beatha de phobal manachúil Gaelach i dtús a ré.

 

Láithreán Oidhreachta Domhanda: Liosta Sealadach

Tá freagracht náisiúnta ar an Roinn Ealaíon, Oidhreachta agus Gaeltachta as Liosta Sealadach a thiomsú de láithreáin go n-ainmneofar agus go n-inscríobhfar ar an Liosta Oidhreachta Domhanda iad. Bhunaigh an tAire Ó Gormlaigh Grúpa Comhairleach Saineolaithe in 2008 chun láithreáin in Éirinn a bhreithniú d’fhonn cinneadh a dhéanamh faoi na cinn is fearr, dar leo, a chomhlíonann na critéir atá riachtanach go n-ainmneofaí iad.

Is éard atá i gceist leis an Oidhreacht Dhomhanda go n-ainmnítear láithreán lena mbaineann sárluach uilíoch don chine daonna agus atá inscríobhtar, ar an ábhar sin, ar an Liosta Oidhreachta Domhanda ionas go gcosnófar é go mbeidh léirthuiscint ag na glúine atá le teacht air agus go mbainfidh siad taitneamh as.
