Welcome to Clontuskert.com - the home of the Clontuskert Heritage Group.
Clontuskert is a rural parish near the town of Ballinasloe, in County Galway, Ireland.
The Clontuskert Heritage Group was founded in 2005 with the express purpose of collecting and preserving information on the heritage of Clontuskert parish.
To achieve this goal, our book, The Parish of Clontuskert – Glimpses into its Past, was researched, written and published. A new reprint of this book is currently available to purchase in local retailers and directly from the Clontuskert heritage group.
The gravestones in the three parish cemeteries were recorded and published on the web; the Rolls of Clontuskert National School are being digitised. We intend to publish a record of houses in the parish and their inhabitants, from the 1830s to the present day at some stage in the future.
After a hiatus of a few years, the Clontuskert heritage group was re-established in 2022 with some additional new aims. We are currently organising a series of Talks and Walks events to explore local history.
Helping people around the world to trace ancestors who hailed from Clontuskert, continues to be an ongoing and pleasant undertaking for us. If you have any queries relating to your ancestry, or if you wish to purchase a copy of our book, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
