The Barony of Gaultier Historical Society is an organisation that promotes both local and national history within the Barony of Gaultier.
The Barony of Gaultier Historical Society was formed by a group of individuals from the fishing villages of Dunmore East, Passage East, Cheekpoint and the surrounding rural areas. Barony of Gaultier Historical Society during the winter months holds a number of talks with various guest speakers. Every year we produce a calendar from which all the proceeds are given to a charity. We also hold a Harvest Field Day each summer which the proceeds are also given to a charity. We also try to visit a historical site each year. Our members are very active and endeavour to improve the Society each year. Within the Barony of Gaultier which spreads from Creaden Head in the east to Ballinaneesagh in the west there are a number of historical sites. The Giants Grave in Harristown is one of these sites and the Society members visit it a number of times each year. Membership of the Society is free. Admission to the talks is €5

Yesterday we asked you to 'Name the Goal'!
Did you guess correctly?
GAANOW Rewind takes a look back to the 2005 All-Ireland Quarter-Final as Owen Mulligan scored this famous goal for Tyrone GAA against Dublin!
May Pole, Co. Waterford (27th of April 1909)
Here’s a treat for you - some images taken on the 27th of April 1909 in Co. Waterford. Although the May Bush tradition was most popular in Ireland, the May Pole tradition was also practiced too and this is related to the wider May Pole tradition found in Wales, England and across many northern European countries.
These images were taken for a Mr. Knight and feature in the Poole Collection which is now in the National Library. There were 3 images taken and I’ve included them and zoomed some detail which caught my eye such as the boys in the dresses/smock tops and the girls with the flowers in their hair.
I will share some film footage of this tradition in the next few days but in the meantime enjoy these and as always please like folklore.ie and The Wexford May Bush Festival for more material like this.
