A happy group of young people wearing funny hats pose for young Mr. Poole on the steps of some building, presumably in Waterford, with a sign HELP - Star of the Sea out in front. We can probably name one of the people with the priest surely the one who commissioned the image Fr. O'Connor. What else can we find out about it and where was it taken?

    Per the Irish Newspaper Archive, I see headlines for (edited for readability): Friday August 28, 1925 Duncannon Fete and Sports. Friday August 21, 1925 The list of probables for Sunday's big event at Duncannon will be further augmented by Sunday evening. Friday August 14, 1925 DUNCANNON CARNIVAL promoters of the above to provide an attractive bill of fare for those visiting Duncannon on the 23rd. Valuable prizes will be given for the various athletic events, including a handsome silver CUP for the five-mile marathon race presented by Messrs. T. and H. Heine, jewellers, Waterford. (Unfortunately, the Waterford Council digitized archive does not cover 1925.) The 23rd was indeed a Sunday in 1925.

    A different Stella Maris “Far away in the west the sun was setting and the last glow of all too fleeting day lingered lovingly on sea and strand, on the proud promontory of dear old Howth guarding as ever the waters of the bay, on the weedgrown rocks along Sandymount shore and, last but not least, on the quiet church whence there streamed forth at times upon the stillness the voice of prayer to her who is in her pure radiance a beacon ever to the stormtossed heart of man, Mary, star of the sea.” ― James Joyce, Ulysses
