Since SWORDS HISTORICAL SOCIETY was founded in 1982, dedicated volunteers have worked to record, promote and preserve all aspects of the heritage of the greater Swords area. Swords, in Fingal, Co. Dublin was founded by St. Colmcille is the year 560 A.D., when he blessed the ‘well of clear water’ thus giving the town its name; ‘Sord’ meaning ‘clear or pure’. The Saint’s Well is maintained by the Society who refurbished it in 1993. The Society’s Museum and Heritage Centre at the Carnegie Library, North St., Swords is run by volunteers. There is a fascinating collection of old photos and artefacts on display and their oral history project has produced the annual ‘Swords Voices’ publication. Now in its eighteenth year the publications have chronicled the memories of local people, thus creating a unique social history of the area. Members also are available to give historical walks around Swords, and talks to students, ethnic groups etc.
