Welcome to the official website of The Bray Cualann Historical Society 

Due to the current Covid19 restrictions, our  Monthly Talks will be postponed until further notice.  All 2020 paid memberships will remain valid for the year 2021, and this will be reviewed again later this year.  

The society hope to publish some research on the Boghall area of Bray for National Heritage Week 2021.  Further details will be posted on this site in the coming weeks.


Wicklow in the revolutionary decade (part 1, North).

While not in the vanguard of armed activity in the revolutionary decade, Wicklow was, nevertheless, active in other respects. Moreover, its unique characteristics—proximity to Dublin, pioneering development of tourism, and one of the highest Protestant populations outside Ulster—make it worthy of study. Listen to History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham in discussion with Rosemary Raughter (Greystones), James Scannell (Bray), Brian White (Enniskerry) and John Dorney (editor of ‘The Irish Story’).
