About us

Milltown Heritage Group was set up in 2005 and is based in a small village in North County Galway, Ireland. Our aim is to preserve, foster and enhance the history and heritage of Milltown and ensure it will be available for present and future generations at home and abroad.

Milltown Heritage is a member of ICAN (Irish Community Archive Network) and Galway Community Heritage Network. This is a partnership between Galway County Council, the National Museum of Ireland and a number of community heritage groups. Community groups meet regularly, pool their ideas, expertise, knowledge and resources together to ensure the best quality website that can be achieved is available to everyone on a local and global level.
