A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots.

Recently, it has become sadly evident that many heritage sites in Ireland are suffering untold damage due to the actions of visitors, ranging from general carelessness to outright vandalism.

To make people aware of this, and to inform them how they can protect heritage sites during visits, I have designed the poster below. Please share it.

It is up to us all to protect our past.

about the poster

In the Protect Our Past poster below, I chose to incorporate an infinity symbol by joining the Os of the two 'POP's in the header together. This symbolises the inextricable bond not only between our past and present, but between one another. 

Although our heritage belongs to us all, no one generation owns it, and so each must act as a custodian for the generations to come. As with any issue, the first step on the road to a better future is awareness, so you could help in the protection of Ireland's heritage, or any country's heritage, by sharing the Protect Our Past poster. Together, many small actions can make a big difference.
