Coppeen Archaeological, Historical & Cultural Society (CAHCS)

The Coppeen Waymarked Walks and the Coppeen Heritage Trail


The primary aims of CAHCS are to research, record & preserve all aspects of our archaeological, historical & cultural heritage & to foster an appreciation of these near & far.

Normally, we have a guest speaker once a month, meeting in the function room in An Caipín Bar.

We have produced four volumes of ‘Coppeen – A Glimpse of the Past’ an ongoing series of local heritage journals.

We have developed ‘Coppeen Waymarked Walks‘ a series of four themed loop walks taking in some breath-taking scenery. Park in Coppeen village & enjoy our fresh air, hospitality & scenic routes.

We have developed ‘The Coppeen Heritage Trail’, a map which invites & directs tourists & visitors on how to find us & discover for themselves the rich tapestry of heritage sites all around our area. We have numerous examples of ringforts, stone circles, megalithic tombs, galáns, fulachta fiadh, souterrains, anomalous stone groups, stone rows, stone pairs, rock art, boulder burials, early ecclesiastical remains, fonts & burial grounds.

Last Nov, we produced a highly acclaimed film doc on the Kilmichael Ambush to commemorate its centenary entitled ‘Kilmichael Ambush – A Story of a Century’:
