Welcome to 2018 with Balbriggan & District Historical Society

Welcome to 2018 with Balbriggan & District Historical Society.

We are currently putting together our programme of events for 2018 and we will be sharing those on the website as soon as possible. Check back with us over the next few weeks. To whet your appetite one of our long standing members Jim Walsh is giving a talk on Friday 23rd February at 8pm in Man O War GAA Club on the History of Man O War and the Turks Head. I am sure anyone who has heard Jim talk before will know that this is something to look forward to.

This year why not find out more about history, by getting involved with our Society. Have a read through our website developed for us by Dorothy Bentley of Fletcher Bentley. Have a look back at our activities – walks, talks, exhibitions, commemorations- and spread the word among your friends, particularly those who aren’t on Social Media.

To bring a fitting end to 2017 we were delighted to win an award at the Balbriggan Town Awards. We were particularly proud to be associated with the additional award for Frank Whearity for his book Balbriggan a History in Maps 1655-1900.

Due to its huge popularity Balbriggan a History in Maps had sold out and we had it reprinted and it
is available to buy in Book Haven, Easons, Drogheda Museum Millmount and Skerries Mills.
