Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
There is a microscopic Dog!
where micro dog ?? I can't see it
Strange - no sign of activity except for the man and his dog, yet the laundry is drying on the washing lines (right side). Must be brand new, yet no workmen fiddling around.
https://www.flickr.com/photos/foxglove See note on photo. https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia My thoughts as well and no cars parked either. Lawns established and even growth. Bedding plants in the borders either side of front door. Early spring time as trees in the background are not in full leaf.
truely, the centre of the town has really seen better days !
I see the note, not sure if that is a dog - the "posture" is more like a (dont say it !) cat -
Overall there are sheep in town but no people! and there are no long shadows so it would not be very early morning
I think this might be Our Lady's Hospital, Cashel. With the building to the left now gone.
Google Satellite View
The Rock of Cashel would be at the top of the photo. St. Dominic's Abbey, the courthouse and the Bishop's Palace are all visible.
Edward Lovett Pearce's Cashel Palace (1732) in the background is unmistakeable
The Military Archives have an aerial photo of the Rock, which overlaps with the top part of this image.
Our Lady's building (the one on the right) is at the NIAH, dated 1934-1940, so finished 15 years before this shot, so well open.
The County Hospital Cashel, as it was then known.
Hospital on right, nurse's home on left?
It was designed by Vincent Kelly in the International Style. The nurses home was demolished in 2002.
The building of the hospital was not without controversy. From a speech by Colonel J. Ryan (Fine Gael), Tipperary in Dail debate on the Estimate for Local Government reported in the Midland Counties Advertiser on Thursday 13 April 1939. Controversy - but Col. Ryan seems to be admitting that much of it might be tittle-tattle.
There is the case of the Cashel county hospital. about which I put down a question some time ago. People are beginning to talk a lot about that: a lot of foolish talk goes on, I admit.
This hospital was started—perhaps it should never have been startedover four years ago. The contract was to be finished in two years, but it is not yet finished. the work was carried on in a defective way from the beginning. The lowest tender did not get the contract for that hospital. In addition, the terms of the contract were not carried out, because, according to the contract, the stones and other materials belonging to the old hospital were to be piled up and were to be the property of the county council. To the knowledge of some of the leading lights of Fianna Fall the stones of that hospital were sold to another contractor. That hospital is not yet finished, but the contractor for it has now got another contract in addition to that one. That second contract was never advertised and that contractor got it, although the work he was doing was defective and he has not yet finished the first contract. As I say, it was never advertised and nobody knows what the Price is. The Minister and his Department have some responsibility in a matter like that. I do not care who is concerned with it in the Department, the responsibility must be placed somewhere.
When the hospital was proposed in 1932, it was said that it would cost £100,000 to build and equip. Two thirds of this amount would come from the sweep, and approx £33,000 would come from the rates of South Tipperary. Upkeep and running the hospital would be £10,000 a year. (Waterford Standard - Saturday 10 December 1932)
£73,232 received from the Hospital's Trust (the Sweepstakes) according to their 1955 report www.lenus.ie/bitstream/handle/10147/316728/Ireland's+Hosp...
The hospital had 90 beds and replaced an older one.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet Map updated, well done.
For my money, that Cat is a Terrier
I think there's a person (see note) standing outside what is now a bank, if I've identified the right building on street view. Or it might be a post box. Or a large dog standing on its hind legs.
