Coal Market

Carlow


Noted added 2012 by Michael Purcell: Coal Market was renamed Kennedy Street on 3rd December 1963 in memory of President John. F. Kennedy who, a week earlier, was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

This scene was photographed in 1963 by Sean Swan, it shows flooding in my home street Coal Market. Later that year following the assassination of President John R Kennedy in Dallas, Texas, Coal Market resident and neighbour John Swan promoted the idea to rename the street Kennedy Street and so it has remained to this day. On our left we see 'Johnny Nails' pub with O'Neill over the door.

Up the street with the cafe sign on the wall is 'The Market Cafe'. It was owned by the Shanaghy family. The larger house adjoining is 'The Elite Salon' run by hairdressers Hannah Corcoran and Josie Slater. Carlow County Council along with other groups have taken precautions to ensure that there will be no more flooding in this area.
