Glenelly Historical Society was established in the spring of 2006 by a gathering of local people who had in common an interest in the recalling and recording of what has gone before in Upper Badoney (Badoney).

The Society seeks to enhance an appreciation of the unique and diverse history of the Plumbridge and Cranagh areas. Glenelly Historical Society's role is enhanced by older people who take time to contribute individual memories of their very own past. In allowing others to record and archive what they recall, they ensure that Glenelly's heritage is not forgotten.

The participation of local schoolchildren in projects that the society sets out to do, ensures the handing down of Glenelly's traditions and an appreciation of what it is that they mean. The enthusiasm of Glenelly's own people and those from further afield, in supporting our ventures and adventures makes our existence worthwhile!

Throughout our history, people from the 'Plum' and Cranagh have scattered to all parts of the world. Some will never return. Glenelly Historical Society is always pleased to correspond with those who appreciate that our past is worth celebrating and have an interest in what we do.

Glenelly Historical Society is affiliated to the Federation of Ulster Local Studies and is always keen to liase with likeminded fellow member groups with a common interest in the study of local history.
