A commission to photograph a large family grave with all of it's own tragedies and losses well remembered at that time for Mr. Poole. Mr MJ Cass, of Peter Street, Waterford gave the commission yet the name Cass does not appear on either stone as far as I can make out? What can we find out about the grave and the families concerned?
Today is the 100th anniversary of the death of General Michael Collins in combat at Beal na Blath in West Cork. A great tragedy that deprived us of a great leader. Ar dheis Dé.
