The famed “Tivoli Cup” is an emblem of a long-running “racquets” competition that is played against the plastered white walls on Kilkee beach – a game unique to the seaside town. Film star Richard Harris won the trophy four times in a row (1948-1951), a record that still stands. A statue was unveiled in honour of Harris and his racquets exploits in recent years in Kilkee.
