  8. T.Mooney says:

    That ‘s Tony Gallagher, in picture No 1, fourth from the left at the back. How could you leave Tony out ? !!

  9. T.Mooney says:

    In photo no 2 the second man from the left is Paddy Flynn, Duffcarrick (I’m sure of it)

  10. T.Mooney says:

    OOps , sorry, should have typed “picture No 4” not picture No 2. apologies.

  11. Tommy Mooney says:

    At the risk of seeming pedantic, can I offer some information on some of the photos and some corrections.

    Pic 1. Back Row; Fourth from left is Tony Gallagher, it looks as though his name was accidentally omitted.

    Pic 4 2nd from left along the back row should be named as Paddy Flynn (Duffcarrick) not Matty Brien. Squatting down, in front, is Mikee Brien (Ballinamona)

    Pic 5 All names , in one row , from left Dan Grady, Donal Lenane, Alice Carlton, Unknown man, Eileen Moloney, Willie Mulcahy, Maura Moloney, Batty Mansfield, Kathleen Carlton, Tommy Hallahan; Kneeling in front Paddy Prendergast.

    Pic 7 Jim Mansfield is 5th from left, (the very small man at 4th from left is unknown, but could be Paddy Paul) At the extreme right is Eddie Spratt.

    Pic 12 Middle row, fourth from left is Declan Hennessy.

  12. Picture 13 shows Kenin Gallagher[must be a misprint]It should of course read Kevin Gallagher—my brother.Well done in showing these old photos

  13. R Mooney says:

    Pic no. 2 – back row, between Mr Manasfield, and John Keevers, sure that is John Faherty.

    Pic no 2- back row, person directly to left of Derlva Moloney is Noel Looby

  14. Grania O'Brien says:

    Picture no 2 front row between Cynthia Lewis and Kenneth O’Brien is John Hennessy Grange

  15. Coleen says:

    My mom recognizes a few of the names. I have to show her these pictures. She is John Mulcahy’s sister Bridget Philomena born 1934. My grandfather was Laurence Mulcahy and grandmother Mary Mulcahy.

  16. Joe Roche says:

    Picture no 3, middle row between Mikey Power and Ned Foley, it looks like my father, Sean Roche. I won’t see him until the end of this month (I live in France). But I’ll try get one of my sisters to show the picture to him. His eyesight is only fair, but he may be able to add a few missing names to some of the other photos.

  17. martin harty says:

    Picture 8, are Tom Harty & Michael Harty related. Could be my Father & Uncle. Do you know when this picture was taken ?

  18. martin harty says:

    Me again, is the Tom Harty in picture 8 the same Tom Harty as in picture 10 ?

  19. Finbar Cullen says:

    I had an uncle, Jim Cullen. I think that he might be the one in picture 11. 12 is him, but I am not sure of 13. Does anyone know? What ‘papers are those 3 pictures from, and what dates?

    • Tommy Mooney says:

      The same Jim Cullen (RIP) is in pics 11, 12 & 13. He was a son of Deuglan O’ Culliu, who was NT in Grange school, a great Gealgoir. Jim himself taught in Old Parish and Dungarvan.
