Kerry Archaeological and Historical Society
Fostering and promoting an interest in the wider culture and heritage of County Kerry
The Kerry Archaeological and Historical Society was founded in 1967 by a group of visionaries who saw the need to raise awareness of the County’s past. Our Society is a voluntary, non-profit-making association. All proceeds from sales of subscriptions and publications are utilised exclusively in the day-to-day running of our activities.
Today, our Society has over 500 members internationally. We host a series of autumn, winter, and spring lectures. During the summer months we organise outings to a variety of sites of historical or archaeological interest, sometimes even venturing abroad. Membership subscription also entitles members to free entry to the vast majority of these events.
