North Kerry Reaching Out is a voluntary community project, which was established to collect and preserve the Genealogy, Culture and Heritage of North Kerry. We are collecting old photographs, documents, oral histories, stories, family histories etc. all of which will be made freely available through our web site www.northkerryreachingout.

We are available and would be only too delighted to help people find their roots in North Kerry.  Some more of our members are currently undertaking a genealogy and heritage course and on completion we will be able to expand this service. Through North Kerry Reaching Out we hope to link Kerry people worldwide.  Anyone who has roots in other parts of County Kerry can also contact us and we will give them guidance whenever possible.

The areas included in the
North Kerry Reaching Out project are, Asdee, Abbeydorney, Ballybunion,  Ballyduff,  Ballylongford,  Duagh,  Finuge,  Knockanure,  Listowel,  Lisselton, Lixnaw, Lyreacrompane , Moyvane and Tarbert.
