Charles Kickham

“Charles J. Kickham 1828 – 1882. Patron of Ardoyne GAA [Cumann Lúth Chleas Gael].” Poet and columnist for the Irish People, Kickham was arrested in 1865 after the offices of the paper were raided upon suspicion of organising an IRB rebellion. The local club has had a mural at the top of the street since 1993.

Flax Street, Belfast.
