Eleven projects shortlisted for the National Heritage Awards 2019 | National Heritage Week 15-23 August 2020
Olivia Fitzmaurice and Aoife Guerin created a maths trail for the Ennis Friary, which has been shortlisted for a National Heritage award. See https://www.heritageweek.ie/news/eleven-projects-shortlisted-for-the-national-heritage-awards-2019 for further details.
Maths trail/tour of Ennis Friary’ at Ennis Friary, Co. Clare. The tour for families explored Ennis Friary through the medium of mathematics and comprised a trail to cater for children studying maths from fourth class to second year. It was developed to broaden the Friary’s appeal beyond being a heritage site, and to explore the use of maths taught in school today, alongside learning about the life and times of the medieval kings, stonemasons and friars associated with the site. The winners will be announced on 6 February.
