Dúchas Clonakilty Heritage's third volume of the popular “Clonakilty Historical and Archaeological Journal” is now available at local outlets costing €10. It contains 12 excellent articles examining different aspects of local history and built heritage, focusing on the seventeenth to twentieth centuries, as well as many interesting photos - some of which have not been published before.
We are delighted to announce that the Dúchas Clonakilty Heritage published book, ‘Clonakilty Town Council a History 1613 – 2014’, is now available.
This project was organised by a sub-group of Dúchas Clonakilty Heritage who engaged the services of Dr Matthew Potter, an authority on local government in Ireland, who was joined by Dúchas members Tomás Tuipéar and Michael O’Mahony, to write this comprehensive history. In the words of our Cathaoirleach Tim Feen, ‘this is a veritable history of Clonakilty’.
The limited edition of 200 illustrated books, containing previously unpublished documents and research specific to Clonakilty, are available at :
COUGHLAN’S, Rossa Street, KERR’S, Ashe Street and PADDY MEADE’S, Pearse Street, at € 25.
In the current environment many individuals, clubs and organisations locally are currently putting measures in place to keep the morale up and keep people occupied (in the safety of their own homes), and so Dúchas Clonakilty Heritage have decided to make available for free the two volumes of the Duchas Clonakilty Heritage journal as PDFs on our website here
It is possible to read / download the entire journals or just individual articles.
