Function of the Society

The primary aim of the Society, is to promote all aspects of history and heritage as they relate to the Island of Ireland, and where relevant, to the Howth Peninsula. In the pursuit of this aim the Society will aim to preserve all key historical, cultural and environmental features of the Peninsula and will contribute to the local community by promoting educational, tourism and recreational inititives and developments which are underpinned by our unique natural and cultural heritage



Monthly Lectures of the Society

By seeking to enquire and to explore into relevant areas of heritage and history, the Society runs a monthly lecture series excluding the summer months of July and August and the Christmas month of December. The meetings are held normally on the fourth Tuesday of the month in the Sea-Angling Centre on the West Pier, Howth. The type and variety of lectures may be gleaned from the sample of posters which populate this page. A full list of past lectures may be seen on our

Archives Page.
