His­tory lec­ture


ALL Kil­macanogue His­tory So­ci­ety mem­bers are asked to note that the so­ci­ety will hold its April meet­ing back in the Glen­cor­mac Inn on Tues­day, April 6, where the lec­ture will be given by James O’Brien.

Ti­tled ‘A Jour­ney through Wick­low by Old post­cards’ this will com­mence at 8.30 p.m. James will take all present on an imag­i­nary jour­ney around Wick­low in the ear­lier part of the last cen­tury through the medium of old post­cards.

Beginning in that favourite re­sort of Bray, then down the coast to Ark­low, into the moun­tains and fi­nally back to Kil­macanogue and En­niskerry, it will com­plete an his­toric cir­cuit of the hum­ble post­card.

James O’Brien spent his early years in the En­niskerry area where he de­vel­oped his life­long in­ter­est in post­cards and coins.

He is a well-recog­nised fig­ure at many na­tional and lo­cal an­tique fairs and ar­cades, trad­ing as ‘The Col­lec­tor’s Shop’. Please bring along some of your old post­cards of Wick­low should you wish to give them an air­ing. En­try is €3 (€2 for mem­bers) and as al­ways, all are wel­come.
