Annaghdown Heritage Society was formed in early 1996, when a group of interested people came together to collect artefacts and information, in order to preserve the heritage and folklore of the area for posterity.
The objectives of the Society are as follows:
To organise suitable events promoting the heritage of the local area in its broadest sense, and to provide a welcoming environment for all of those interested in local heritage;
To maintain a website and to compile and upload information on local history and heritage for upload thereto;
To collect and compile recorded items, artefacts and writings of local historical interest and to preserve and deposit the said articles in the Heritage Room at Corrandulla Old Girls’ School for use within the room by local people, other interested parties and visitors;
To raise funds to pay for collating and preserving the said articles and any other related expenses;
To visit similar groups and provide hospitality to visiting groups, and to promote social integration between all age groups.
This booklet presents a complete transcription of all extant tombstone inscriptions at Corrandulla Cemetery. Together with a plan of the cemetery and a surname index, we hope it will be an invaluable genealogical and local history resource for the Annaghdown community and diaspora.
This booklet presents the results of a project to collect information on the stone-built wells in the Annaghdown area. Illustrated throughout with maps and photographs, the booklet contains information on 28 wells in the parish, together with traditions and stories associated with them.
