Annaghdown Heritage Society was formed in early 1996, when a group of interested people came together to collect artefacts and information, in order to preserve the heritage and folklore of the area for posterity.

Under the chairmanship of Br Conal Thomas, assisted by Cassie Furey (Secretary), Nicholas Lyons (Treasurer), John McGagh (PRO), and many other dedicated individuals, the society has over the years organised many lectures and other events, erected monuments, carried out restoration work, and published books and booklets on many aspects of the history of Annaghdown.

The current committee members are Paul Greaney (Chairperson), Irene McGoldrick (Secretary), Nicholas Lyons (Treasurer), Jessica Cooke, Joe Gardiner, Patsy Lynch, Joe McDermott, Peter Newell, Evelyn Stephens, Br. Conal Thomas, and Martin Wallace.
