Old Picture Of The Week: Killybegs 1890’s

Killybegs in Co. Donegal has been a fishing port for a very long time. However, unlike the towns we looked at recently, this is one that has undergone large changes in the last hundred years.

Above we see Killybegs from the land, looking out to sea. Notice the church with the battlements towards the right. This was taken in the 1890’s

 

I was unable to find a picture from exactly the same location. However in this one taken back toward land from the harbour you can see the same square church tower in what is an obviously much more built up town.
