Happy Christmas 2018 from Ballinrobe Historical & Archaeological Society


To all our community, visitors, supporters, friends and our diaspora worldwide, we wish you all a very Happy Christmas.

We are delighted to introduce you to the Ballinrobe Eavesdropper magazines that appeared during 1985, 86 and 87. Declan Varley, its Editor will shortly give the history of this interesting glimpse into Ballinrobe of the 80’s plus information on contributors.

In the meantime do enjoy these flipbook versions: Pat Donnellan, Software Developer of Ballinrobe was a great help in creating the coding for this feature and uploading them to this site: we appreciate his help: thank you Pat.

Also many thanks to Grace Grimes who spent hours scanning these magazines and preparing them for upload: many thanks Grace for all the work.

And finally thanks to Declan Varley, Group Editor of the Galway Advertiser for kindly donating his full collection of 72 magazines to us for sharing with you all.

We would appreciate if you would forward the links to the Christmas issue of 1985 to you family and friends and share this great resource on Ballinrobe.

Finally, we thank all those who donated information and images to our site over 2018.

Many thanks,

Averil (Staunton) Editor, Historical Ballinrobe.
