What a lovely way to start the week, photographically speaking that is. A fine portrait commissioned by Mr. A.E West of Kilcoroney, Bray shows a man in outdoor tweeds with his cap and walking stick in the prime of life. Who was Mr. West and what might the connection be between Bray and Waterford?
On posting the letter from the Earls O'Neill and O'Donnell on Friday we were looking forward to translations and information. We were delighted to be able contribute to the education of that most erudite Flickroonie John Spooner, who was introduced to that old Irish tradition of cogging his latin!
