Lecture – 1995

Author – Harte, John

Monsignor Casey, parish priest of Skerries in the fifties. The paper attempts to illustrate the personality of the man and the town as it was then. During the lecture, extensive use was made of photographs which Monsignor Casey had owned. These photos and transparencies, now in the National Photographic Archive in Temple Bar, show images from Waterford, Dublin, USA and Lourdes during the period c.1910 – 1925.
