Skerries Historical Society

The Mill Pond
Skerries at 9am
1st. Jan. 2000
.

 


We promote awareness and conservation of local history, heritage, folklore and artifacts.
The Society's main area of interest is Skerries and north east Fingal.


Holmpatrick Terrace was built by the Skerries Building Company
and No.1 (above) was used by James Hans Hamilton.

The next public meeting of SHS is at 8.15pm on April 14th

Brendan Grimes referred to The Skerries Building Company during his lecture on the Hamilton Monument last year. He promised then to focus on this company in a future talk. There's plenty local interest in the topic because James Hans Hamilton, whose family virtually owned the town, was a founding member and shareholder, and George Woods (Milverton) and Edward Taylor (Ardgillan) were directors. The company had offices in Kildare St. and possibly Rathmines. Brendan will share his recent research at the Bus Bar on Tuesday, April 14th. .

All are invited to attend.
