We are concerned with social history. We believe that this social history is very important and that it should be recorded. We want to preserve people’s life stories, their way of life and of life in general in the locality in the years gone by. If you have any stories or photographs of times past we are interested and would like to record them. If you would like to contact us we would love to hear from you. Please see contact detail at the bottom of this page.

Mission Statement

Bawnboy Heritage identifies, collects, records and preserves the history, heritage and culture of Bawnboy, West Cavan and the surrounding areas and draws on them to enhance and to promote our locality.
