Journal Articles

Inniscarra Historical Society published its first Journal, called "Changing Times" in November 2017. It proved to be a great success and was therefore followed two years later by the second issue.
It was decided that articles from the first issue could now be published on this website and these will be progressively added to this page during the months to come. We begin with Tim O'Brien's Muskerry Tram and Frank Donaldson's tribute to his mother Florence.
