Rathmichael Historical Society

The Rathmichael Historical Society is open to everyone.

Our activities include historic tours, annual outings, workshops, lectures and discussions, social events and participation in the Federation of Local History Societies activities both in Ireland and abroad.


The Rathmichael Historical Society was founded in 1972 and, for nearly 50 years, has provided lectures, outings and courses in Archaeology and History to its members in south County Dublin and, indeed, in a much wider area.


The Society holds two series of lectures held in Spring and Winter and a major series of five lectures, with a unifying theme, held in Autumn.


The Society organises an annual weekend outing which is always interesting. It also organises a series of outings during the Summer months.


For many years the Society published the Rathmichael Historical Record. The full series (1974-2003) has been scanned and uploaded.
