Kilkeel People 1916 : 2

It was the year of The Somme and many of Kilkeel’s sons fought and died there. It also was the year of the Carlingford Lough Disaster when the Connemara and The Retriever collided at the Bar just outside of the town.

Most of the bodies were brought to Kilkeel and many are buried in the local Church of Ireland cemetery.

These are a few of the town’s residents of that time.
