Mr. St .John of Crohane, Killenaule in Co. Tipperary commissioned Mr. Poole to produce this image way back in 1908. While I have passed through Killenaule many times I cannot remember such a gathering of horses and carriages but that may just have been a question of timing? On a more serious note I suspect that we will have to dig into the background of Mr. St. John in order to establish the location and other details of this image?
