Bliain Eorpach na hOidhreachta Cultúrtha 2018

Déanfaimid ceiliúradh, i gcaitheamh na bliana 2018, ar éagsúlacht na hoidhreachta cultúrtha san Eoraip – ar bhonn Eorpach, náisiúnta, réigiúnach agus áitiúil.

Is é mana na bliana seo: Ár n-oidhreacht: an t-am atá caite maille leis an am atá le teacht.
