About BDHS

Formed in 1985, the Blarney & District Historical Society is a non-denominational and non-political organization which endeavours to record for posterity matters of local historical interest and also to preserve and protect local heritage.

Through a series of public, illustrated lectures each year and the publication of the ‘Old Blarney’ Journal, we try to share the information gathered in an affordable form.

In the 38 years since its inauguration, the Society has organised over 494 lectures, field trips and other events. Illustrated, indoor public lectures normally take place on the first Thursday of each month excluding June and August when weather dependent Field Trips may take place. July is holiday month.  There is a nominal entry charge for non-members.

Interest in the Society has gone from strength to strength over the years but we are always looking for new members to join and help to continue this very valuable and interesting work for future generations to enjoy.
