The Society encourages historical reseach, particularly in relation to Malahide, its environs and its people. We will also be pleased to consider publishing suitable material on this website.
An average of three editions per year of the "NEWSLETTER" have been distributed to members since the Society was founded in September 1978. The 100th edition was issued in 2013. A very wide variety of topics of mainly local historical interest have been covered in this journal over the years. However, please be aware that an entry might refer to anything from a passing reference to substantial detail. The back numbers should provide plenty of inspiration and information, particularly for those doing school projects or essays.
An alphabetical index and an index by issue number may be consulted via the links above.
Back numbers are available by post and at the Society's museum at a cost of €1 per copy.
Files containing copies of many issues may be consulted free at Malahide Public Library.
There are two recently published, fairly comprehensive books available in local bookshops.
"Old Malahide", 200 pages, by Roger Greene, 2012 €12.99
"Portmarnock", 300 pages, by Garry Ahern, 2013 €15.00
