Please note that all public activities of Skibbereen and District Historical Society are suspended for the duration of the present Health Emergency.

We will continue to serve our website and Social Media pages.

We always welcome the submission of material for our archive. While articles of an academic nature are always valued we also like to record the personal accounts of people of their involvement in notable events or even what might be considered their ordinary day to day experiences.

The extraordinary circumstances that are touching our lives at present provide a great opportunity to write future history. Your personal accounts and photographs will be of great importance in the future. We have few personal accounts of the Famine from the ordinary people. Please send us your accounts of how the Covid-19 pandemic touches you and your family.

Material submitted may be considered for inclusion in a future edition of the society Journal or our Social Media presence.
