(9)    Federation  – Local History Publications  – Request
Hi folks , we are interested to hear about any local history publications which your society might publish. If we have this information we could use it to record and disseminate it to any interested parties as there is always an interest and demand by local history researchers. This would be an opportunity to get some exposure and advertise the publications as many of them would not reach the major book shops. Anyone interested should contact Larry Breen at e-mail larrybreen8@outlook.com


Since hard times started last March we have lost 2 former members of the society,
Anne Binley (July) and Betty de Mangeat (December). 

We would also like to remember Austin Cunningham (November) a dear friend of the society who attended talks whenever well enough to do so.

May they Rest In Peace   Suaimhneas síorraí leo uilig
