The aim of the Kilmacud Stillorgan Local History Society is to promote and sustain an interest in our culture, heritage and history, particularly with regard to Kilmacud Stillorgan and the adjoining areas
Kilmacud Stillorgan Local History Society is delighted to announce that Margaret Smith’s book Schooldays in Stillorgan will be launched in mid-September 2021. The book will be on sale at €15 on our website and from other outlets to be announced.
All profits will be donated to the school.
We are very pleased to announce our planned talks for next season. At present, we are hopeful that we will be able to hold the talks in Glenalbyn. However, our plans will be adapted to meet the circumstances at the time.
Also, we would like to thank all of you who have purchased Obelisk 2021 - it has proven to be very popular. A special thanks to our sales outlets and the Stillorgan Shopping Centre which helped make this possible.
The fifteenth edition of the Society’s annual journal, Obelisk, was launched ‘virtually’ on 28 November. We took this approach as we are unable to have our usual launch night in Glenalbyn, where we get a chance to meet the authors and enjoy some refreshments together. Thanks to technology we now offer you our virtual launch with a short description of the articles and a chance to see our authors. Why not relax with a cuppa or a glass and enjoy the six minute presentation :
As always we pay a special thanks to our contributors for their very enthusiastic response with material and without whose stories there would be no Obelisk. Over the years Obelisk has accumulated a rich trove of articles that help to give us a fuller picture of daily life and the streetscape of times past.
