Irish Group Newsletters   

In 1992 the Irish Group decided that the people in the country and city people unable to come to the WAGS library regularly, may appreciate more information in the form of a newsletter. The first quarterly newsletter was published in February 1993.  Newsletters have been sent all over Australia, New Zealand, England, Ireland and America. Until recent years this cost $10 a year. The fee is currently suspended.

Make sure you provide your contact details clearly so you can receive a copy!

We really welcome your contributions. Your success story, brickwall, photo or information may help others. To submit an item - long or short - please contact Newsletter Editors Elissa and Maureen via  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
