Kilkenny Birthday – 22 December 1999



22 December 1999, Kilkenny, Ireland

I celebrated my birthday that year with a night in Kilkenny and a visit to its famous castle. It was a surprise to find a working photobooth located at McDonagh Station, as Kilkenny is a small town and Ireland has never been awash with them.

These come from my series Photobooth 41 Year Project. You can see all the posts that document the series by clicking here.


  1. so it seems we cant be in the country at the same time – in 1999 i was living out foreign 🙂


    • Hi Brendan. Yes, but I think I have been to Ireland 9 or 10 times now, so we MUST have crossed over one time at least! In the future I hope to be able to do one of your tours on a visit.

    this is one of those points in time where almost everyone will remember where they were and whom they were with. i was in the caribbean on 22 dec, but came back to the uk for the milennium in pursuit of a female. i should have stayed where i was 🙂


    • Oh dear, Martin. That sounds like a sad story, but could also be a funny one from this distance? Yes, the carribean would have been a better place to enjoy the milennium celebrations if your were jilted at home. But the fireworks would have been more spectacular in the UK, eh? Always an upside to a disappointment, hopefully…


  4. Oh, I thought the photo booth was in the Castle. Seems only appropriate for the Queen of the Photo Booths!
