About Us

Welcome to Callan Historical Society.

Please visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/callanheritage for news and photos.


We were founded in 1982 to promote and encourage public interest in the history and antiquities of Callan and District, and their connection with the county of Kilkenny. We are affiliated to the Kilkenny Archeological Society.

We research the history, archaeology and genealogy of Callan and its inhabitants. We protect buildings and other monuments of historical and architectural interest in the Callan area and develop public interest in them. We also publish pamphlets and other publications about Callan and District. See our publications page for a list of materials we have on sale.

We meet at 8pm on second Monday of every month at Droichead (formerly CBS), West St, Callan. New members are always welcome – just drop into the next meeting.
