Two Months as Kilkee by Mary John Knott

The Irish Times, November 1997

Two Months at Kilkee (€15.00), by Mary John Knott, extolling the virtues of the Clare village as a holiday resort. At that time board and lodgings could be had for £1/5s a week but it was a great advantage to have a local servant, as most transactions were conducted in the Irish language. With her Quaker outlook, the writer noted that, at the end of nearly two months in Kilkee, she had not seen one woman under the influence of drink and only two men. This is a fascinating glimpse of another era.
