Intangible Cultural Heritage

Ireland’s National Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage exists to promote, protect and celebrate Ireland’s living cultural heritage. It provides official State recognition of cultural practices all around Ireland.

Travelling circuses and funfairs are meshed into the fabric of Irish society. Childhood memories of seaside resorts or summer festivals will invariably contain a funfair or circus visit.

 In July 2021, Minister Catherine Martin approved the inscription of Irish Traditional Travelling Circus and Funfair to join the existing practices on the National Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Ireland.
