Shannon Archaeological & Historical Society
Shannon Archaeological & Historical Society began this project in late 2017, upon the realization of the rapidly disappearing knowledge of placenames in the Mid-West region. A burgeoning project of the Society, our aim is to retain and re-establish the 'sense of place' in Clare and surrounding counties through the medium of preservation. Our collections are bilingual and often hybrid in language, showing the last traces of the Clare Gaeltacht which once was. We engage with people of all ages and backgrounds, largely on an informal basis, and hope to work in partnership with other organisations in the future.
