Clarinbridge Heritage Group

We Are What We Were! 

Clarinbridge Local Heritage Group is a group of volunteers who first came together in 2010 to collect, record and preserve stories, folklore, photographs and other items of local heritage in our community.

With ongoing mentoring from the National Museum of Ireland - Country Life we are collecting information, stories and photos of historical interest from people who, wherever they live, would like to record what ‘we were’ and so contribute to understanding what makes Clarinbridge and its hinterland what ‘we are’.

If you would like to contribute to this community archive, you can Register and upload, or just e-mail us at and we’ll help you get started.
