Connemara West have been working with our wonderful  community volunteers to survey and map the six graveyards in the Ballinakill Parish area.  There is such a great interest in this project and in local and family history that  Connemara West,  with support from  GRETB, are offering a free  Family and local history course on line via ZOOM led by Tutor,  Monica Hynes.  The course will concentrate on the skills to carry out computer based research in archives and repositories, census records, land and estate and Civil and Church records. The course will be mainly held on line but there is now a possible that the final two sessions will be amalgamated into a classroom session or field trip. There will also be a break for mid-term so there will be plenty of time to do the research.  Booking by 4th Feb. Contact Janet on 095 47117 or email on
