Is your local history or cultural society planning a publication or series of talks? If so we may well be able to assist you financially.   As a registered charity promoting genealogy and local history, Irish World aims to assist local groups to publish their work and improve knowledge of local history and wider cultural studies throughout Tyrone and Fermanagh.

Publications Grants

Grants of up to £500 are available for publications dealing with local history and culture in the widest sense. Examples of topics include family-history, archaeology, place-names, parish or club history and local poetry or prose, past and present. Publications can encompass numerous formats, such as hard-copy book, DVD, CD or Ebook.

In addition, grants of up to £200 are available for history societies to help fund speakers and presentations.

Grant For Speakers Application Form


When considering applications, Irish World will need to be satisfied that all sources of projected funding are in place, and that any grant provided by them will be complementary.

All applications will be assessed on how well they set out the aims and objectives of the proposed publication or talk, and how it will celebrate local culture and contribute to local knowledge. The grants-programme is open throughout the year, and applications will be assessed on an ongoing basis.
