More About This Title Youghal In Old Photographs


The historic seaside town of Youghal has a rich and vibrant history that is uniquely captured in this collection of archive images. Still a popular tourist destination today, local historian Kieran Groeger explores the development of the walled town from its importance as a military base and port to its subsequent transformation into a seaside resort. With images recalling old shops and industries, schools and institutions, changing streetscapes and the characters that made the town, this is an invaluable record of the heritage of Youghal.


Kieran Groeger, a retired headmaster, is a member of Youghal Celebrates History, runs their website and has written Youghal Heritage Trail. He regularly gives talks on Youghal’s history.
