Apologies for the late posting! Morning Mary was at a wedding yesterday and got home late last night so slept late! Fortunately we have this wonderful wedding group from the Poole Collection brighten up the day. Mr. McGee from Lower Kilmacow commissioned the work and they do look a very happy group with some of the most ridiculous hats you could shake a stick at!
Yesterdays lovely image of the wheels without a train managed to be explored. Thank you for all your wonderful comments.
And FOGRA yes there is a DOG in this image!

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/bernardhealy] Seems likely. Sgt McGee possibly placed the order the day before the wedding, which would account for the date. Some more information here on Cookes of Kilmacow: genealogy-ireland.blogspot.com/2011/05/cookes-of-kilmacow...

    I couldn't find much in newspapers - other than Patrick McGee being from Castlelough, Nenagh.

    Patrick McGee/Magee died in 1937 at the age of only 32. The ages don't match entirely, but I think this is him and his family in 1911, and this is his birth record. (There is a gravestone record on p10 of the pdf here with Martin McGee, his wife Catherine and sons Patrick and Martin.)

    If that is the right wedding, we need an Anastasia Cooke, father Thomas, born Waterford. I do not see any such Anastasia in 1911 census. Waterford? Why did I think Waterford?

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] I think this might be Anastasia and family, as Mary Alice Cooke was one of the witnesses.

    At the funeral of Patrick Cooke, 17, in 1948, who drowned while bathing at Tramore, there was a wreath with : "From his cousins the McGee family, Kilmacow". Patrick was the son of Mr John Cooke and Mrs Cooke of 54, St Declan's Place, Waterford. (Waterford Standard - Saturday 14 August 1948)

    The church at Kilmacow looks like a tree-free zone now and in the Cassini and 25" maps, so I don't think they are at the church. At the reception, perhaps?

    Anastasia had at least 6 younger siblings (for some reason I can't find her in the birth records) including twin brothers who would be 12. I'd assume that the youngest 4 are those sitting on the ground

    If I'm not mistaken, Thomas Cooke is the brother of the Edward Cooke that https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley identified here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/6791590666 (I haven't identified any overlapping people, but I'm really bad at that. Inanimate objects are much easier).

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet The man between the priest and best man today could be Edward Cooke?

    I'd say you could be fairly confident about that identification. The burly fellow second from the left in the middle row looks a bit like the man at the very back of the 1922 photo, but I'm not sure.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ It occurs to me that the presence of the dog suggests a domestic setting rather than a church or hotel.
