About us

Founded in Dundalk in 1903, the Society’s main objects are to preserve, examine and illustrate all ancient monuments, memorials and documents of County Louth and adjoining districts, to study the arts, manners and customs of the past to which these monuments belong, to find out all that is ascertainable about the archaeology and history of the area and to assist the museums in the County, and the County Archive, to discharge their functions.
