Kill

Kill Local History Group

The Kill History Group was set up in 2002 after a meeting called to see if there was interest in setting up a group to research and record local history and lore in the Kill area.

Since then the Group has continued to meet, on the fourth Monday of the month, in the Parish Meeting Room (attached to the Parochial House) in Kill village at 8.30pm. The Group normally takes a break during July.
