Welcome to the County Louth Archaeological and Historical Society
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.
The Society functions through its Council which is nominated and elected annually. The current Council consists of 22 people drawn from all parts of County Louth (and a few in Meath!) A list of the Council members may be seen on the Contact page. The Council meets every month to transact the business of the Society which includes the organisation of events, election of new members, discussion of policy and planning matters, which includes agreeing the submission of observations to statutory bodies, and any other matters arising.
If you, whether as a member or not, have an issue which you wish to raise, please contact any Council member who will be happy to discuss it with you and, if appropriate, bring it to the attention of the Council.
