History Society

Rosscarbery & District History Society

The Society was founded in 1995. Monthly meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month from October to April, except December and January. Field trips are organised during the summer months, except in August. The annual general meeting is held in October. Meetings and outings are well attended, as there is a lot of interest in our local history. In 1999 the Society published its first journal, “Rosscarbery Past & Present”. The journals of the Society have been published around the end of November each year since then and are a very popular present from local residents to relatives and friends around the globe. All past volumes are currently available. Please click here.
