The Galway Archaeological and Historical Society was founded in 1900 to promote the study of the archaeology and history of the west of Ireland.

Since 1900 the society has published forty-five Volumes of its journal of the Galway Archaeological and Historical Society, a publication which is an essential work of reference for anyone working in the area of Irish History and archaeology.

With this support of the Heritage Council, the full text of these forty-five Volumes is now available on compact disk.
