This gentleman is Mr Goff, and the only other information we had until this morning was one word: "Comeragh". Thought that it might be the name of a house, or that Mr Goff could even have been from the Comeragh Mountains... But as ever, we weren't left in ignorance for long!
Based on inputs from Bob Montgomery 2012
and John Spooner
, it was suggested that this fine gentleman was/is William G.D. Goff, of Glenville, Dunmore Road, Waterford. ofarrl
later proposed that it is William's brother, Frank Davis Goff. Read the comments below for more info...

All you Flickr regulars who work away on our photos, delving, researching, arguing, and hopefully enjoying yourselves, may not have heard yet, but you're all starring in a full page article in today's Irish Times
. It's on page 7 for those of you in Ireland, and here's the online version
. Oh, and there's another slideshow of images
you'll be familiar with too...
See, I've always said that while there may be no prizes, you're doing it for the glory! :)
