    I don't see them in the Civil Records - maybe they were married in Rome?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley 1952 is too late for the civil records. Marriage records are only released after 75 years.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland I'd wait until at least 2028 myself - the new records only get released after a full 75 years has passed (at the earliest).

    They could very likely still be alive. A newspaper search might help with marriage announcements from the period?

    earlier comment deleted I notice a 2020 funeral (" . . .removal to Gowran . . " ) which may be related. In which case, Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h-anam.

    Poole seems to place little, if any, importance/care to his backdrops and carpets. It's as if he couldn't be bothered how they looked or what his clients thought of them look.....Pretty manky in this instance.
