Your first visit?

Welcome to the Historical Ballinrobe website which has been created for the enjoyment of anybody with an interest in Ballinrobe, its neighbouring towns, townlands and their hinterlands.

On the left side you will find categories which will bring you to information on suggested themes.   These will be expanded in due course and as required.

On your right you will find details on specific interest items.  Again, these will be added to and expanded over the coming months and years.

What would you like to see on the site?   

Naturally, we would be delighted to hear of any suggestions or ideas that you would like added to the site, and we will do our best to fulfil those wishes.

How can you help?   

Add your own story or memories to this website.   It can be just two lines or two pages and remember "Capture it before it disappears " - before those memories are lost forever!

When you are ready to contribute your own story or images - you'll need to register a username and password and help has been provided with details below.


Any information at all to do with life in Ballinrobe, its neighbouring towns, townlands and hinterland, either past or indeed the present; as this will be tomorrow's history and heritage.

It could be documents, diaries, letters, bills, accounts, legal documents, songs or poetry, gravestone inscriptions and information, paintings, photographs, invoices, maps, sketches, posters, old advertisements, old badges, race cards or programmes.

You may be prompted by looking around the site and see what other people have added.   If is it only one photograph, or a piece of data or story, it will be very welcome.

Any questions?

Do you need any help with the material you're thinking of adding?
