    Maybe not such a long trip! Here is Patrick Quinlan of Vine Vale, Ballymacarbery (farmer) marrying Margaret Mary Murphy of Dunhill, in Tramore, June 19th 1940. The shot next door in the catalogue has the whole wedding party, POOLE_WP_4337 and the date.

    Might be if Ballynacberry was a place. I'm guessing today's misprint is Ballymacarbry, Waterford.

    He looks 50-odd here, which would be consistent with the fashion on display.

    Have we got another misprint - Is Vine Vale actually Nirevale?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Patrick's father Edward and his brother Edward (best man) in the census are both Edmond on the marriage record. I definitely see Nire Vale on the marriage record now that you say it. The capital N in Nire is quite different from the V in Vale.

    There is a house named Nirevale on the 25" and Cassini in Ballymacarberry, just across the river, this one in Google Maps aerial view.

    On the brides side, here are the Murphys of Dunhill in 1911. Bride Margaret is 6, bridesmaid Mary is 5, so Margaret is 35 here.

    Not to jinx anything, but I do not see death records for either of the happy couple (and the date is way too late to see any birth records).

    Google throws up this report on preservation of farm buildings in REPS which says that the Nirevale farm has been in the Quinlan family for over 160 years.

    Stabbing at Nirevale

    STABBING AFFAIR NEAR CLONMEL (From our Correspondent.) Clonmel, Tuesday. A man named John Tierney, plasterer, of Ballymacarbry district, was seriously stabbed last night, and a man named Patrick Hyland, residing in the same locality, has been arrested and charged with the offence. Hyland was brought before Mr. Wm. Orr. R.M., to-day at Tierney’s house, where the injured man lies in a a serious condition. District-Inspector Morant, Cappoquin, conducted the prosecution. Tierney stated that when returning home, passing a place called Nirevale, he sat down on the side of the road to smoke a pipe. Hyland and another youmg man named Nugent came up. Hyland struck him and knocked him into a ditch, and stabbed him with a knife three or four times. Patrick Madden. a local summons server, corroborated Hytand’s version of the case. He stated that he was concealed behind a fence near Quinlan’s gate, when saw Hyland knock Tientey into the dyke and then stand over him, take something out of his pocket and make a drive at Tierney's head. Witness saw two strokes delivered. Witness went up and Hyland went away. As he passed witness said, “All right, my boy." He noticed that Hyland was covered with blood. He reported the matter to the police. On the application of District-Inspector Morant, the accused man was remanded. Tierney, whose life is not yet out of danger, had his wounds dressed by Dr. M‘Enery, Ballymacarbry, and Dr. Wynne, Clonmel
    (Cork Examiner - Wednesday 14 April 1909) It must have been exciting for young Patrick. P.S. On Wednesday 07 July 1909 the Waterford Standard reported the trial, including that "Dr McEnery reported that none of Tierney's wounds were serious" and that "after a lengthy hearing, the jury acquitted the prisoner".

    This is my best guess at the Murphy family home in Dunhill in Streetview, 5 windows to the front, thatched roof, loads of outbuildings.

    Niervale House (apparently), at the NIAH: from c.1880. The (possible) Murphy homestead beats it, being from c. 1820.

    Hmm, I could be wrong on the Murphy home, there is an undigitized photo in the archive titled Cabinet copy commissioned by Mrs. R. Murphy, Dunhill Lodge Dunhill, Tramore, date 1949-52. Dunhill lodge is an altogether different farm near Dunhill Castle. I see a grave for a Robert Murphy of Dunhill lodge, the right age to be Margaret's little brother Robert.

    What a great photo. The detail and sharpness is exquisite, can even see the weave of the fabric. This was one hell of a photographer -and camera! Wonder if he was using a Nikon or a Canon.
