Next week sees some interesting events, including the monthly lecture of Kinsale History Society on Thursday 2nd March 2017 at Kinsale Temperance Hall at 8pm with Terry Connolly in the lecture Chair. Archdeacon Tom Duggan, who had the new bridge, Kinsale, named in his honour, will be remembered in this lecture.
Very much an enigma, he was a grandson of a Fenian patriot, a veteran of the First and Second World Wars, he was also a strong supporter of the Independence movement and a rebel within Church circles. Possibly his greatest achievement was to set Kinsale on its current path of prosperity.
