Our Current Work and Plans for the group

We are currently involved in two projects

Project 1 Heritage week submission

We published a pre-recorded online narrated video entitled ‘The Story of Quin through the Ages’. This is a small introduction to the heritage of Quin and surrounding areas. This video is the focal point to our project  submission for National Heritage Week 2021.  Our full submission can be viewed here


Project 2 – Heritage Audit

Over the next few months local volunteers will undertake a Heritage Audit of the Quin area. This has been made possible by a grant of €4,000 from the Heritage Council and will be completed by October 8th 2021.

Your input into these projects would be most warmly welcomed. We need old photographs or information on traditions, characters, events, folklore, archaeology and history to help build the fascinating story of Quin.

In the meantime we are keeping a digital archive on all the information we are gathering and will post what we find onto our website. Due to the rich heritage that surrounds us, this is quite an undertaking for a small team.

We encourage individuals, families, experts and enthusiasts to come and give us a hand. If you think you might be available please contact us using the contact us button at the end of this page or alternatively you can email us on quinheritagegroup@gmail.com.
