North Munster Antiquarian Journal

Presented in association with the Thomond Archaeological and Historical Society

The North Munster Antiquarian Journal is published annually by the Thomond Archaeological and Historical Society, which traces its origins to the foundation of the Limerick Naturalists’ Field Club in 1892 and more specifically to the establishment of its antiquarian section in 1897 when its name was shortened and it began publication of the Journal of the Limerick Field Club (1897-1908). Following another change in title, it produced the Journal of the North Munster Archaeological Society from 1909 to 1919, when the Society and its journal both ceased to exist. It was re-established ten years later as the Thomond Archaeological Society [the word ‘Historical’ was added in 2004] and since 1936 has published the current journal. Until 1968 each volume of the journal (including its predecessors) was issued in separate parts, varying in number, each year; no copy was produced in 1954 while a single volume covered the years 1962-3, 1973-4, and 1998-9. A fuller explanation of this is published in vol. xxi (1989), p. x. While history and archaeology are the predominant subjects covered in the journals there are also articles on place names, historical geography, folklore and folklife, numismatics, architecture and other kindred studies. The focus of most, though by no means all, of the published material is on the North Munster region of Limerick, Clare and North Tipperary.
