This view of a town from the far side of a river with an imposing church and probably school nearby might interest you.

Is it Enniskillen? no it's Navan, Co Meath another Location Identified well done Niall McAuley . Niall also points to the canal lock in the right foreground and identifies it as Metge's Lock.

    I'll say Navan. In this Streetview, you can see both church towers. I can't get an angle from across the river, though. St. Mary's is from 1800s, I thought is looked more modern. Italianate belltower from 1870, per the NIAH.

    Maybe. I'm looking at this on a mobile so I can't see it very well and I've no streetview.

    You can see that canal lock on the OSI 25" map as "Metge's Lock".

    One from the NLI archive Lawrence collection, showing both church towers, taken from the railway bridge, I'd say.

    I see the little turret on Boyne House, built 1908.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Nice! And Boyne house is NOT in that one, so it's before 1908. Not much change otherwise: the hedges and the creeper on the CoI church tower grow a bit.

    m.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ that's the one I've seen before. Did we have it on Flickr already or did I find it in the catalogue some other time?

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] You might have seen it while researching Three boys in a boat just upstream. St. Mary's CoI is in that one, too.

    Or perhaps you are thinking of this one? Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh, late 19th century

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] Here's a third in the sequence of photos over time: a postcard, sometime between 1959 (when Kennelly's started doing postcards) and 1970(when it was sent).

    It definitely reminded me of that one, niall, which is why I said enniskillen, but I've seen sharon's one before too.

    Even though I am a flickr Pro user, I do not understand Explore. Every now and then, people suddenly congratulate random photos for making Explore!!! But if I hit the Explore tab, I don't see them. It's a mystery to me.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] I know! I was invited to submit the shot for Explore, accepted it and when I went looking for it could not find it:-) Having said that it is up to 6500 views today which is way above recent viewing numbers!

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] what you will have had is an invite to add it to the (unofficial) 'in explore' group - they automatically send out invitations *after* your image has made it into Explore (something that is a magical process based on secret Flickr algorithms!). Actually, I don't think you can send group invitations via the api so they must do it manually, which is quite a task! This one made it to #159 - see bighugelabs.com/scout.php?username=47290943%40N03&sor... Polite request: could you update the title to give the location and remove the 'EXPLORE' bit? ;)
