Kilkee Civic Trust Summer Talks – Guarding Loop Head < Back
Location: Culturlann Sweeney Theatre
Address: O Connell St
Town: Culturlann Sweeney Theatre
Time: 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Speaker: John Williams
Ireland was neutral during the Second World War but the war still had an impact on life in Ireland. The little-known story of the coast watchers’ contribution to the safety of the country and the story behind their lookout buildings is very interesting.
