Thought it'd be good to end the year with a smiley (and you all know that's a technical term!) photo. These happy ladies are salvaging wood from the military barracks in Cork after it had been destroyed by fire...

    Not to do with your photo directly, but a very good read. 28 February 1921: Six Volunteers were executed by the British Army in Victoria Barracks, Cork on this day. The men were shot by firing squad. www.politics.ie/forum/history/182881-day-irish-history-19...

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland I believe so. The sign is on the outer of the two arches you see in street view.

    My Mom was born in 1925. So they could be an Aunt and a cousin!

    Victoria Barracks, Cork was burnt by retreating anti-treaty forces early August 1922.

    Ooh. One to talk to the family about over (the) Christmas. Yes [http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] tis the same gate (that's the guard house in the background). I concur with [http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] on the date. Barracks was burned in August 1922. (EDIT: Photo was probably taken by Hogan on 9 August, as part of this series. Carol wasn't it in the "witness to war" collection...?)

    Interesting story suggested with the smiling people and the word "dead" showing up on the sign
