IN its very short life, the Kilbrittain Historical Society has certainly been busy since they formed at the end of February of this year.
To top off a very successful first year, which saw the group go on several historical outings, they are launching their first Historical Journal, on Saturday December 12th in Kilbrittain Community Hall at 8.30pm.
The group meet once a month and arrange talks of historical interest, as well as having guided historical walks, and such was the interest and contributions from locals that the society decided to print an annual journal detailing a range of articles contributed by locals.
‘We have been taken aback with the level of interest from the parish. Kilbrittain has a wealth of history dating from the Castle in 1035, through to the Civil War, and onto more recent times. We are really looking forward to publishing our first Journal,’ said Sean O’Connor, chairman of Kilbrittain Historical Society, speaking to The Southern Star.
Southern Star Creative is responsible for the design, layout and printing of this journal and it’s something Sean Mahon, managing director of The Southern Star, said he is delighted to be associated with it. ‘Local history is something that we are passionate about here in The Southern Star and we are delighted to have worked with Kilbrittain Historical Society in the design, layout and print of such a detailed and informative journal,’ said Sean Mahon.
The committee of Kilbrittain Historical Society is Sean O’Connor (chairman), Con McCarthy (vice-chairman) Triona O’Sullivan Enright (secretary) Diarmaid O’Donovan (PRO) Denis O’Brien (assistant secretary), and Niall O’Brien (treasurer).
The Kilbrittain Historical Society Journal is €10 and will be available in local shops once launched.
