About us (Legacy pages)

Who we are

Louisburgh & Killeen Heritage are a small group of volunteers who came together in 2011 to record and preserve the history and heritage of the area. In partnership with the National Museum of Ireland  we maintain this open access website and encourage contributions from all.  Indeed, most of the information has been contributed by ordinary folk who have an interest, be it past or present, in the community and its people.

How it all works

On the left side you will find categories which will bring you to information on suggested themes. These will be expanded in due course and as required.

On your right you will find details on specific interest items. Again, these will be added to and expanded over the coming months and years.

Interested in becoming a contributor?

We are always looking for contributions to the website and you don't even need to leave the comfort of your own computer to help.  Click Here to see how to get started.

To keep things neat though, Louisburgh-Killeen Heritage retain editorial control over all submissions.
