The Carlow Historical & Archaeological Society has since its founding in 1946 (as The Old Carlow Society) presented a series of lectures over the winter months. In 2015 we commenced recording lectures to both preserve them and to make them available for people who were unable to attend at the time.

We have also made available some older lectures which have been kindly donated by members and some other talks which are related to the history of Carlow.
