Kickham house, Fethard St, Mullinahone

This is plot 2, Fethard St, on the [Griffiths Valuation] map.

This location was the draper's shop of John Kickham (died 1861).
His son Charles Joseph Kickham, the Fenian inherited it and lived here until 1877.
The Fenian died 1882.

However the old Kickham building may be gone.
See entry for the house in NIAH. This says the current building dates from 1902.

This building became a small Kickham museum in 1982.
The museum is now closed.
"Teallach Kickham" is written on it, which basically means "Kickham's house" (or "hearth").

It was sold in Feb 2022 for €80,000.
Described at sale as "a former public house together with residential accommodation overhead." "Internally, the property comprises a ground floor public house together with 5x bedroom residential accommodation overhead."
