Irish Heritage Partners

Supporting the work of the Irish Heritage Trust

Our Irish Heritage Partners are strategic philanthropists focused on the key deliverables of impact and transformation. Their philanthropic vision and leadership is articulated by the support they give to significant heritage projects.

The Trust’s Irish Heritage Partners are agents for change – without their incredible support, transformational and impactful heritage projects would simply not happen. The Trust proudly acknowledges this inspired leadership and is honoured to showcase this tremendous support of Irish Heritage.

History, heritage, diversity and sustainability reflect the values and mission of James Hardie. It is these values that have led James Hardie to become the Irish Heritage Trust’s first Irish Heritage Partner.

James Hardie and No 11 Parnell Square

The Irish Heritage Trust and Poetry Ireland are working together to unlock the potential of No. 11 Parnell Square East in the heart of Dublin city.

James Hardie is thrilled to be supporting the creation of a dynamic cultural space in No.11 – a home for poetry and heritage – so that this architectural gem can be enjoyed by visitors from Ireland and beyond for generations to come.

“With the thoughtful, strategic and impactful philanthropic leadership of James Hardie, the Trust will now be able to bring No.11 back to life. This very special place, in the heart of Dublin, will forever more be at the service of the community and accessible to all. Our sincere and heartfelt thanks to the Board and employees of James Hardie for making this possible.”

Investec is proud to be a long-time supporter of Irish Heritage at Strokestown Park House and the National Famine Museum, managed by the Irish Heritage Trust.

“Over the years, it has been so rewarding for us to help philanthropically and to participate in the Trust’s volunteering programmes – especially the upkeep and maintenance of the beautiful gardens of Strokestown Park.

Our involvement dates back to 2010 and even recently our colleagues have been busy cutting back of one of Irelands longest herbaceous borders at Strokestown Park, planting trees, and digging!

We are honoured to have been awarded the Trust’s highest philanthropic designation – Irish Heritage Partner – in acknowledgement and recognition of our commitment to Irish heritage. Long may our support and contribution continue.”
