The Agricultural History Society of Ireland is always open to new members and would like to hear from anyone with an interest in agricultural or food history.  Our main activity is organising conferences on a range of agriculture-related topics.  See About for further details.

Continuing with the theme from our Summer Conference, on Saturday 9 November we will be hosting our Autumn Symposium: Trees and Forests : Woodlands in the Irish Landscape. This will take place in the Helen Roe Theatre, RSAI, Merrion Square, Dublin. This will also coincide with our AGM. More details can be found here.
