Offaly Heritage 8 to be launched by top young historian

The latest edition of Offaly Heritage has been published and will be officially launched tomorrow, Thursday 25 June.

Edited by Dr Ciaran Reilly, Offaly Heritage 8 is the 2015 publication of the Offaly History and Archaeological Society and it's packed with 300 pages of local history research. Genealogists with family from County Offaly (formally King's County) would discover much in these pages about the world in which their ancestors lived, as you can see from the Contents list. The book costs €15 (a limited number of hardbacks are also available at €20 each).

The new publication will be launched by a young Tullamore historian, Ciara Molloy, who came first in Ireland in history in the Leaving Certificate and has recently been awarded a Trinity College scholarship.

The launch will be held at the Offaly Heritage Centre, Bury Quay, Tullamore, Co. Offaly at 8pm.
