Taken by photographer, B. Lawlor.

We've seen the front of St. Nicholas' Church before with the Egg and Fowl Market and the back view in one of our O'Dea photographs from 1964...

You can compare this view of St. Nicholas' Church with its companion photo taken approximately 100 years earlier as part of the Lawrence Photographic Project 1990/1991, where one thousand photographs from the Lawrence Collection in the National Library of Ireland were replicated a hundred years later by a team of volunteer photographers, thereby creating a record of the changing face of the selected locations all over Ireland.

For further information on the Lawrence Photographic Project, read all about it on our NLI Blog.

Date: Saturday, 3 November 1990 at 12:25 (weather conditions - fine)

    I passed by here about 10 days ago. Not much different apart from the influx of crusty types.

    I see the spire is roofed in copper compared to slates in the older photo.

    Thanks[email protected] Robin. Hadn't noticed that. As usual, once there's a clock, that's my focus. It may be an illness!

    Is that the same tree a hundred years later? Not as big as I thought it would be...
