A very interesting photo of a fishing party in Clonbur Co Galway, They can proceed north to Lough Mask or south to Lough Corrib, I wonder which lake and if their piscatorial pursuits were rewarded on the day in question?

sharon.corbet Directs us to the census records for the Joyce household in 1901, wherein there is listed a 16 year old Coachman James Kavanagh, could he possibly be one of the drivers in our photo?

Thanks also to Sharon for pointing out that we are actually in Co Galway rather than Mayo as stated in our catalogue.

Derangedlemur and beachcomberaustralia both inform us that surprisingly the Google Streetview cars did not go down this particular street, I wonder why?
