WHO WE ARE
Kilmacud Stillorgan Local History Society was founded in 2001 to promote and sustain an interest in the culture, history and heritage of Kilmacud, Stillorgan and surrounding areas and to encourage research into all aspects of life here in former times.
We invite people to attend our monthly talks which are held in Glenalbyn, Kilmacud Crokes GAA Club from September to April each year. Talks are held on the second Thursday of the month, starting at 8.00pm, and they cover a wide range of topics. All are welcome to attend and admission is €3.00. A list of our upcoming talks can be found on our website.
Our next talk is on Thursday 10 October 2019: “Kitty-cut-a-dash: a cautionary tale” by Marie Oxx. We also publish an annual journal entitled Obelisk, which contains articles of local historical interest. Obelisk was first published in 2006 and has a wide circulation. It is on sale locally from November each year.
We welcome submissions from authors. A vast amount of hidden history has been uncovered and recorded by our many authors over the years, adding considerably to our awareness of the richness and diversity of life in times past. We welcome especially personal reminiscences of old times.
We welcome participation from all and feel certain that you will be stimulated by the variety of activities in our society. We invite you to visit our website and sign up for our newsletter or send a query. Or you can attend one of our upcoming talks and meet our members.
