Claregalway is a rural parish rich in history and tradition. In 1991, the Claregalway Historical & Cultural Society was founded. The group aimed to collect the local history and publish a book from the information gathered. The group initiated a FÁS sponsored scheme which began the enormous task of documenting the local history. In 1999 produced a 300 page hardback book. It sold in excess of 2000 copies, and has since been reprinted. Contact: Seamus O’ Connell on 091 798 245.
