If you attended our October lecture from Sandra Lefroy, you will be very familiar with the yacht in the above photograph! This is the nineteenth-century ‘The Phoenix’, a boat which has been in Killaloe for most of the last hundred odd years. You can see a photo of the enthralled crowd at the lecture here!
Here is a visual of the wonderful snippet from the Irish Times on the 16th of May 1873. Enjoy!
In other news, we have just updated the Resources page with a link for every local building that is listed in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage. Click here and scroll down. From Lakeside House to Killaloe Courthouse, there is a wealth of information there.
Don’t forget our next lecture is coming soon! Check out all the details here.
