  • The Night The Army Band Played In Kiskeam Storm Desmond was raging outside, but that didn't deter people from coming to Kiskeam Church on Friday night 4th December to see and hear The Band of the 1st Southern Brigade.

  • It's Just Kiskeam (Poem) It’s Just Kiskeam… No heavy trucks, passing by, There is just light chatter in the “Why Not” bar. And in the two quiet shops, a little boy recites a rhyme, and a little girl sings… You have kept your secrets - your mysterious footprints, and your famous fiddler. Your memories are cast in stone - of your poet, your beloved priest and your ancient dwellings. Perhaps no loud trumpet blows for you, perhaps no loud cry shouts your name. But you are - wonderfully, gloriously and simply- Kiskeam! By Tony Kennedy
