Castleisland-Corca Dhuibhne

Castleisland District Heritage


We collect, archive and promote local history in the Castleisland region for the benefit of the county of Kerry and its diaspora and for future generations. We have a website where we have documented more than 300 local history stories. We are also on social media; Facebook, Instagram and Twitter/X. We have published 10 Journals and a calendar for the first time this year, 2024. We get many people from around the world (Great Britain, New Zealand, Australia and USA) calling into the office and online enquiring about their family history in Castleisland and surrounding district. Through our work/documentation of the John Twiis story we applied to the Department of Justice on behalf of John Twiss relations for a Presidential Pardon. We received the Posthumous Presidential Pardon for John Twiss in December 2021, signed by President Michael D Higgins.
