This fine wedding group, commissioned by Mr William Lennon of Lisnageeragh, Bonmahon has four priests and three bridesmaids among the party of fourteen. The bride was obviously impressed with Mrs. Holohan's dress of last week, and ordered similar material and design for her big day? I like the bride’s happy smile, and hope she enjoyed a long and happy married life?

    New Ross Standard - Friday 28 September 1951. Looks promising at first but (1) wrong number of priests, (2) wrong number of bridesmaids (3) Neither groom nor best man is William. So I conclude wrong wedding, but some of the dramatis personae might well be the same.

    The wedding, with Nuptual Mass and Papal Blessing, of Mr James Lennon, son or Mrs Lennon, Knocktopher, Co. Kilkenny, and the late Mr. Jeremiah Lennon and Miss Agnes O'Connell, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs Michael O'Connell, 2 Scotch Quay, Waterford, took place at St. John's Church, Waterford. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Father O'Shea, O.P., St. Saviour's, Waterford, and Very Rev. A. Barron, ADM,. St. John's. The best man was Mr. Jeremiah Lennon, brother of the bridegroom. The bride was given away by her father, and was attended by her sister, Miss Margt. O'Connell. She was attired in a dusty two-piece with navy accessories and wore a spray of Lily of the Valley, Going away on the honeymoon, which will be spent in Dublin, the bride was attired in a grey costume. The bridesmaid wore turquoise, with matching accessories. The receprion was held at the Adelphi Hotel.

    More Lennons in the obituary of Mrs M. A. Lennon, Bonmahon (Waterford Standard - Saturday 16 April 1949)

    Mrs. Mary Ann Lennon, Glen House, Bonmahon, died at her residence on Monday, at an advanced age. She was widow of the late Mr. Michael Lennon, extensive horse and cattle dealer, who predeceased her some twelve years ago, and sister-in-law of Very Rev. John. Lennon, P.P., Stradbally, and Mr.William Lennon, who gave most of his life-time at Messrs Robertson Ledlie's, The Quay, Waterford, both since deceased. To her family - Messrs. Wm. Lennon, Glen House, Bonmahon; John Lennon, Leamybrien, and Dennis Lennon, rathanny, Kill, and her daughters, Mrs P. Power, Rathgormack; Mrs J Quinlan, do; and Mrs. William Harney, Ballydurn, Kilmacthomas - sympathy is extended.
    So that's a William Lennon, of the right address. The Jeremiah lot seem to be a different lot to the Williams.

    the expression and pose of the groom .... resigned acceptance; he does not look too enthusiastic about his new future !

    I don't know if these are in sequence, but the previous one, POOLEWP 4218 looks like July 27th 1937, and the next one, 4220 below, is 12 August 1937. August 12, 1937 4221 below is 15th August 1937: The Grubb Family

    Here is a wedding on August 18th 1937 between Jeremiah Lennon of Lisnagera and Margaret Brett. Jeremiah was 57! And yes, maybe, megazoom adds a few years... Witnesses were Thomas Brett, and Mary Bridget Curran. Married by Michael Power CC of St. Anne's, Ballylaneen (Streetview.) Margaret Brett was 11 in 1911. Jeremiah Lennon was Head of the Family aged 25. He did indeed have an older? brother William Lennon.

    Glen House, Lisnageeragh: goo.gl/maps/Pj1mJYhsK9t52J9X7 Seems to be early 20th Century - it's not on the 25", though it is on the Cassini.

    They were all Lannons in 1901. It's definitely not a transcription error, though it may be an enumerator error. www.census.nationalarchives.ie/reels/nai001224347/ Jeremiah has also only aged 7 years between 1901 and 1911.

    Fr John Lennon, PP of Stradbally (brother of William Lennon, Glen House, Bonmahon), died in 1934. The account of his funeral in the Dungarvan Observer, 12 May 1934, 1 (snap.waterfordcoco.ie/collections/enewspapers/dungarvan_o...) shows that there were quite a few priests in the family, including cousins Very Rev. J. Nugent PP, Ring; Rev. J. Hally CC, Newcastle [probably Newcastle Co Tipperary]; Rev. M. Dowley CC, Kill; Very Rev. M. Dowley PP, Kilsheelan; Very Rev. M. Walsh PP, Ballylooby; Rev. J. O'Donnell CC, Carrickbeg; and Very Rev. P. Cusack PP, Powerstown

    Very many thanks to Laura O'Donnell, a descendant of the Lennons, who has identified those pictured. The occasion was the wedding of William Lennon of Glen House, Lisnagerragh, Bonmahon and Alice Malone of Rochestown House, Mullinavat, Co Kilkenny, on 4 August 1937 in Mullinavat Church (reception was in the Granville Hotel, Waterford, so perhaps the wedding party visited Poole's between the two). Back row L-R: Fr Drea CC Mullinavat, Mrs John Lennon, Rev. Fr O'Farrell CC Stradbally, Mr and Mrs William Lennon, Mr Michael Malone, Mr Maurice Power & Mr John Lennon. Seated L-R: Rev.
