ake a walk through Kilcoole today, and you’d be forgiven for thinking that you had stepped back in time.
Not back to the 1970s – that would be Kilcoole on a normal day – but 100 years back, to the time of the Rising, and a time when this small Wicklow town played a crucial gunrunning role in that historic event in Irish history.
With a full weekend of busy activities planned for Kilcoole Remembers 1916, full all sorts of historical shenanigans and reenactments, our #1 roving photographer John McGowan headed over today, Saturday June 4th 2016, to catch a flavour of the festivities. You can check his photoshere.
And if you get the chance, swing over tomorrow – where you’ll find theselovely ladiesin action, among other goodies – as they stop the traffic on the main street for some serious 1916 rock’n’roll.
In the meantime, come with us, back to a slightly-less innocent time…
You can see the November 2016 unveiling of Kilcoole’s 1916 plaque here, the 2014 celebrations here, and learn your Kilcoole history here. Ya feck.
