Welcome to a new and very special year with Balbriggan & District Historical Society when, as well as our normal activities, we will be commemorating the 100 year Anniversary of the Sack of Balbriggan by the Black and Tans in 1920. We hope you got a copy of our Commemorative Calendar which was hugely popular and you can view the pictures at this link:Calendar 2020 BHS
