Since its humble beginnings 25 years ago Roundwood Historical Society has been busy gathering, recording & disseminating information relating to the history & folklore of Roundwood and the uplands generally. Throughout this year the Society has successfully hosted a mix of interesting Historic lectures and outings, a popular heritage week event and even launched a brand new website. Cathal Mac Oireachtaigh, Secretary with the Society said 'we are delighted that Tim Pat will be launching our latest Journal and the evening will no doubt be one of highlights of our year. All are more than welcome to attend and Journals will be available to purchase on the night.'
