The Society has published on this website a selection of
short articles on local historical topics. This is not a
comprehensive history - but rather an easy introduction
for those who like an occasional light read. We hope to
add to this collection and to add references to more
in-depth studies on some topics.
The Society's first paper
publication was a collection of Skerries folklore and
folk-ways. It used some material from the SHS paper
archive as a source. It also included a number of
stories from those collected by local National School
children during 1937-38, and now stored in the National
Folklore Collection at University College, Dublin.
Copies are also available at Dun Laoghaire Public
