A great resource for the history and heritage of County Kildare is the website of the  County Kildare Archaeological Society

Founded in 1891 the Society’s stated aim was: “the promotion of the study and knowledge of the antiquities and objects of interest in the county and surrounding districts.”

The inaugural meeting took place at Palmerstown House, County Kildare.

The Society today carries on the work of its founders and is active in the protection and preservation of County Kildare’s rich archaeological heritage.

An interesting programme of outings and lectures is organised each year and the Society’s journal appears every two years.


There is also a partial index to some years of the Journal that I created available at
