Photographic Archive

To date over 10,000 photographs have been generously donated and archived with some up to 100 years old. These photographs, documents and videos are scanned and archived with the originals returned to their owners. Undoubtedly there are many interesting photographs, documents and recordings in the possession of the people of Killorglin parish at home and abroad stored away in attics and drawers. K.A.S wish to preserve this information in order to share it with present and future generations through possible publication or other means. If you would like to become part of this exciting project we would be delighted to hear from you.
