Welcome to the official website of The Kerry Archaeological and Historical Society.
The Society was established in May 1967 for the collection, recording, study and preservation of material relating to the history and antiquities of County Kerry.
With an annual membership of over 700 members worldwide, the Society operates from Kerry Library Headquarters in Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland. It organises a series of lectures throughout the year and a number of outings mainly during the summer months. The Society also publishes a Journal and Magazine on an annual basis.
