"Lover of all things Langton's"
What do you love about Kilkenny?
"The people and the rivers and the passion for hurling".
Fond memories of Langton's is something that Sean Keogh will never forget, having met his wife there we were not surprised to hear when asked if he could choose another career path that he would be the owner of Langton's! Nowadays Sean is more prone to staying up till all hours trying to beat his Son at a game of Chess. While cracking some jokes and trying to set up our lovely interviewer with eligible and local passers-by, Sean also couldn't hide his passion for Kilkenny "I work with Kilkenny People newspaper and have a love of history and what is wonderful for me is that Kilkenny's past is so rich that I never tire of exploring it". Working as an editor for Kilkenny people means getting to meet some incredible people and two that stick out as Sean's biggest claims to fame are the legendary Hubert Butler, the essayist and novelist from Bennettsbridge who is renowned for travelling to Nazi Austria on his own initiative and helped save many Jewish people from being sent to concentration camps and Barrack Obama's cousin, the late Jane de Montmorency who is Obamas oldest living Irish relative. The enthusiastic family man always brings a smile to the everyone’s face and is forever showcasing Kilkenny in a magical light, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and our sources tell us Sean’s charm and wit is similar to that of his slightly known Father… Mr John B King!
