  Calling all 'Carlovians' 

This letter is addressed to all Carlovians around the World and to anyone else who is interested in preserving the history and Heritage of County Carlow.


We are appealing to all Carlovians around the world who may have old photographs, postcards or newspaper cuttings of Carlow and they would like to share the information and images with fellow Carlovians through this Carlow IGP website.  I am particular interested in old Street scenes, Country scenes, County sporting events of the past are always been asked for. School photos of of old schools and pupils. Old documents such as letters, shop receipts and especially old newspaper cuttings. Maybe you would like to write a page on a particular subject about Carlow about your your own experience of your life in Carlow? Then please send me your work, and if suitable, I will have it published on the Carlow IGP website. Everything that we put on the Carlow website is credited to the person who submits the material.

The Carlow IGP website is a totally free access genealogy and history website. People who are researching their Irish Ancestors can do so from the comfort of their own home (and a PC of course), and without fear of having to pay extortionate fees to researchers who cannot guarantee results but still take your money.

In 2000 I was asked to take on the task and responsibility of looking after this website as it had become slightly neglected and forgotten and it was proving very difficult to find someone who had a knowledge of Carlow and at the same time, was willing to give up some of their spare time to develop and promote Carlow and its history. I was only too happy to take on the task as I had lived and worked in Carlow for a number of years back in the 1960's. I had also amassed a large amount of material over the years such as old newspapers and books about Carlow which came in handy when I was putting material together for the website not forgetting the large amount of material that people have very kindly donated to the project. To-day we are proud to announce that there are over 33000 pages of information on the website.

We are continually adding new material and we are always looking for more people to contribute any material they may have that highlights the history of Carlow.

I look forward to hearing from you all in due course.
