The History of Carrigallen and it’s Parish dates as far back as the Stone Age, between the year 4 and 15 BC. We know this from the scant remains they left behind in the form of megalithic tombs which they built as burial places for their dead.
Thankfully the village and it’s people have progress somewhat since then! Listed below in sections, are articles and photographic memories from the earliest days of Carrigallen and it’s people right up to the end of the 21st Century. Some of these articles are part of the book Carrigallen Parish – A History first published in 1996, edited by Carrigallen natives Raymond Hackett and Michael Reilly and designed by Tony Fahy.
