Not even room for a little 'un on this packed day car in Sligo town. Destinations advertised outside Walsh's were Ballina, Bundoran, Enniskillen, Ballyshannon and Roscommon.
Thanks to John Spooner
, we now know this photo was taken on Corcoran's Mall in Sligo and he found great info on Walsh's schedules from Slater's 1870 directory for Sligo:
"To BALLINA, from Corcoran's Mall, a Mail Car, every morning at fifty-five minutes past six, and a Van at halfpast two afternoon.
To BALLYSHANNON, from Corcoran's Mall, a Mail Car, every morning at six; also a Day Car at twenty minutes past two afternoon, during summer months only.
To ENNISKILLEN, Cars leave WALSH'S Office, Corcoran's Mall, every day (Sunday excepted) at seven in the morning.
" See comments below for how John worked out that the trip from Sligo to Ballyshannon worked out at an average of 6.75 mph!
