HISTORY
of the
HISTORY GROUP

         
The Dublin History Group was first formed in July 1997 as a sub- group of the Dublin Community Club Inc. by four Dublin residents, who felt there was a great need to preserve the history of the area for future generations and while the remaining few older members of our community were still able to pass on their precious knowledge.
