  • Here in Shannon, both the Archaeological & Historical Society and Dúchas na Sionna are looking for forward to getting to know the Moycullen group, availing of your experience and sharing anything we have to offer. Perhaps in due course we can arrange exchange visits!

  • Wonderful to have such a reputable and vibrant group such as Shannon Archaeological and Historical Society join our Irish Community Archive Network ‘iCan family’. We look forward to being your ‘buddy group’ as we all work towards the aim of recording, protecting and sharing our local heritage.
