Have you an article you would like to submit for consideration?
If so we would like to hear from you for Obelisk 2022.
Articles can be about the history of Kilmacud, Stillorgan and adjoining areas, e.g. a local church, school, estate, street or family over a period; the study of a movement, society, club or event at local level; the life of a well-known national or international person with local connections. In addition, articles on personal memories or family history of people living in or connected with Kilmacud Stillorgan and adjoining areas are very welcome.
As a guide, articles should generally be no more than 3,000 words in length and the deadline for submission each year is 1 May. We will provide you with suggestions and hints to help you develop and write your article.
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 by clicking on VIRTUAL LAUNCH.
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.
