Welcome to the Finglas Historical Society web site.

Welcome to The Finglas Historical Society website

The society was founded in March 2003, when a small group of likeminded people, got together under the guidance of Paula and Anne-marie. Paula was then chief librarian in Finglas Library and it was here that we had our first meeting.

    What started out as a loose arrangement, where we would exchange ideas and old photographs, became a society, proper, when we elected a committee. The committee consisted of Chairman, Tony Smullen, Secretary, John Smullenand Treasurer, Linda Emmett. By this stage Paula felt we were ready to go it alone.

We meet on the last Tuesday of each month in the Finglas leisure centre, Mellowes Road (first floor ,lift available). New members always welcome

Our aims are simple. We feel that the Finglas area is changing rapidly and we must do our utmost to protect what is left of the 'old' Finglas before it disappears under apartment blocks.

Being members of the society affords us an opportunity to meet old friends, make new ones and gives us a sense of being part of a community.
