About Us

Welcome to the heritage website for the Clifden and Connemara Heritage Society. We hope that you will find something of interest on the history and heritage of Clifden and Connemara. We also hope that you will make use of it to bring your story to a wider audience.

Our society has grown from humble beginnings in the early 1990’s. From those early days we have tried to develop new and exciting ideas. The restoration of the D’Arcy monument, was our first undertaking, and since then we have published a number of journals and a series of Newsletters.

In 2012 we were very involved in the 200th Birthday Celebrations of Clifden. As a lasting testimony to this momentous event we bring you this website.

We will endeavour to grow the site with many articles and photographs. Please feel free to contribute.

Yours sincerely

Breandan O Scanaill
Chairperson Clifden and Connemara Heritage Society
