Other SHS Publications

* Short Articles < = online - click here:
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.

* Folklore/Folkways < = online - click here:
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 Library.

* Time & Tide, Vol. 1
Next, on cue for the Society's 50th. anniversary in 1998, came the first of the appropriately named Time & Tide volumes. This contained nine papers from the archive on topics such as:
Names of fields, lanes and paths around Skerries . . . Priory of Holmpatrick
A local shipwreck - Sarah of Runcorn . . . Skerries based schooners and smacks
The Emergency (known elsewhere as the 2nd. World War)
