Your First Visit to This Website

Welcome to the Historical Ballinrobe website which has been created for the enjoyment of anybody with an interest in Ballinrobe, its neighbouring towns, townlands and their hinterlands.

The website is run by the Ballinrobe Archaeological and Historical Society.  Find out about the history of the Society and how to become a Friend of the Society.

What would you like to see on the site?

Naturally, we would be delighted to hear of any suggestions or ideas that you would like added to the site, and we will do our best to fulfil those wishes.

How can you help?

Add your own story or memories to this website.   It can be just two lines or two pages and remember “Capture it before it disappears ” – before those memories are lost forever!

You can contribute your own story or images via our contribution form.


Any information at all to do with life in Ballinrobe, its neighbouring towns, townlands and hinterland, either past or indeed the present; as this will be tomorrow’s history and heritage.

It could be documents, diaries, letters, bills, accounts, legal documents, songs or poetry, gravestone inscriptions and information, paintings, photographs, invoices, maps, sketches, posters, old advertisements, old badges, race cards or programmes.

You may be prompted by looking around the site and see what other people have added.   If is it only one photograph, or a piece of data or story, it will be very welcome.

Any questions?

Do you need any help with the material you’re thinking of adding? Do you need help with scanning your document or help with publishing it to the site?

If so please email: with your query.

We hope, with your help, to make this site better and better, and hope you enjoy your visit!
