Kathleen Smith's Photo Collection Part II (199 images)

Kathleen Smith met Big Tom when she was fifteen years old, and for the next ten years, she remained a huge fan of the Castleblaney legend. During that time, she collected every photo she could get her hands on and has been kind enough to contribute them to our website so they can be shared with the rest of the world. Whether or not you were a fan of Big Tom, you have to appreciate Kathleen's loyalty and dedication. Kathleen also has plenty of photos of other bands, of course, which are also posted below! Thanks Kathleen, we hope everyone else will enjoy these photos as much as you enjoyed collecting them over the years.
