Pictorial Record of Kilkee – Kilkee Civic Trust Talk
August 14 @ 8:00 pm
Topic: Pictorial Record of Kilkee
Speaker: JJ Hickie
Topic Description: A Treasure Trove of old photographs across not only decades, but two centuries; representing a lifetimes passion for all things Kilkee; has been assembled by well-known and greatly admired Kilkee man J.J. Hickie. So large is his collection; the great dilemma for J.J. will not be what photographs to put in, but what ones to leave out! Each photograph will be accompanied by J.J.’s insightful commentary, revealing many interesting historical facts, anecdotes and, perhaps, even a few surprising revelations.
About The Speaker: An active member of Kilkee History Group & Kilkee Civic Trust; J. J. Hickie is a well-known Kilkee native, businessman, purveyor for many years of Hickie’s Victualler Shop at O’Connell St. Kilkee; now in the safe hands of his son Shane. Those who know him well say the accolade of “Local Historian” is more than justified. J.J. Hickie has an encyclopaedic knowledge of Kilkee’s life and times over recent centuries and his personal selection of photographs is certain to be memorable
This talk is free to attend.
