Journal of the Kerry Archaeological and Historical Society (Downloads only available at present)

The Journal of the Kerry Archaeological and Historical Society is issued free to members and is published annually.

It generally contains a variety of academic articles on topics relating to the History and archaeology of the County and nearby regions. It also sometimes carries articles about the exploits of Kerry people outside of their own home area. It is highly regarded, both at home and abroad.

The Journal is noted for the fact that it contains an index in every issue. Illustrations have always been included in articles, where relevant, and in recent years colour has begun to appear within the pages, making the Journal even more attractive.

The current editor, Tony Bergin, welcomes contributions in all relevant areas, which can be sent directly to him at . Please review Guidelines for Article submission and then contact the editor directly with your proposal.

The complete index to the articles published in our Journals may be searched by entering a keyword/author’s name/title in the above search box.
