A Message From Our Chairperson
Welcome to our website. The main aim of Bannow Historical Society is to whet the history appetites of our readers, budding historians and the curious. Bannow Parish is steeped in history and we should feel very proud and protective of that fact and also of our unique heritage. It is vital that that history and heritage is passed on to the next generation and indeed to all future generations. Local history is now an important element of the Primary School Curriculum and all of us have a duty to ensure our children are made aware of the past. History is an on-going process - the present time will all too soon become the past and indeed the future is strongly linked to the present. We live in a fast-changing technological age and sometimes it seems that the past has no place there, but this is where the enthusiasm and knowledge of the historian comes into play. Tell your children, grand-children and any other young people who will listen to you about their family history, encourage them to get involved in putting together your family tree and above all, encourage them to read, research and grow to love history.
Bannow Historical Society Website is open to all and we welcome any suggestions, criticisms and information which could help us to improve our society and enhance our local, historical knowledge. Ní neart go cur le chéile.
