& Archaeological Society
Historical & Archaeological Society
Based in Castlebar, the society
was reactivated in 1986 after a lapse of many years. Each year
since then, the society has organised a series of very successful
historical, archaeological and geographical lectures, which are
held during the winter months, and these have attracted large
audiences from all over the country.
Since joining the society
several of our members have successfully completed diploma courses
in various third-level colleges. Others have made some valuable
contributions to the understanding of Mayo's ancient culture,
particularly in the field of archaeo-astronomy, fulachta fiadha
research, early medieval burials and local history.
In the summer months, trips
are arranged to major historical and archaeological sites throughout
New members are always welcome.
