Historian will bring old Listowel to life

OLD Listowel will be brought to life by local historian Vincent Carmody in a slideshow at John B Keane's Bar on Wednesday night, February 12, at 9.30pm.

Vincent, who recently published the stunning Listowel: Snapshots of an Irish Market Town, will bring some of his memorabilia to the bar for a slide show looking back at all aspects of local life during the 100 years from 1850 - 1950.

It's part of a local history series running at John B's that previously featured two lectures by former Lenamore headmaster Pádraig O Conchubhair on the life and times of Lord Kitchener and The O'Rahilly.
