Smiles all round for a good beginning!
Description: A lovely smiley wedding group from Mr. Poole to start the week on a positive note! The happy couple, the witnesses, and the clergy all have broad smiles, while the bride has a firm hold on her man. Ordered by Mr. Richard Siggins of 28 The Glen in Waterford. What can we find out about them? +++ UPDATE +++ We found out ridiculously fabulous information about them, and much of the heavy lifting was done by Bernard Healy! Meet engine driver Richard Siggins and Emily Cozens, both of 28 The Glen, Waterford. They got married in the Cathedral in Waterford on 23 October 1944, and their witnesses were William Siggins and Mary Josephine Cozens. The presiding priest was Fr. John O'Connor, so just the stray smiling priest yet to be identified...

Description: Cavan might be the last place you would want to end up for Christmas, but that is only if you didn't know the many attractions of the town! A lovely shot from Mr. O'Dea of the railway station in Cavan with a full stop, which is what we will be doing until after the Christmas. On behalf of all at the NLI and from the Marys, we would like to wish all our many followers and contributors a very happy and peaceful Christmas and a prosperous New Year. For those who do not celebrate Christmas we wish you the compliments of the season. Just to remind us that the season is made of children's memories here are the final lines from a poem by Patrick Kavanagh: I was six Christmases of age My father played the melodeon, My mother milked the cows, And I had a prayer like a white rose pinned, On the Virgin Mary's blouse.

Amazing Grace – with a bit of dodge and burn?
Description: A lovely, happy wedding group this morning from the Poole Photographic Collection. Commissioned by Mr. H. A. Grace of 108 Ballyruckle (Ballytruckle?), Waterford. There appears to have been quite a bit of manipulation of the image to improve or otherwise alter it! +++ UPDATE +++ Gorgeous information on this lovely wedding photo. We knew that Mr Grace of 108 Ballytruckle, Waterford ordered it, and that it was taken on 18 August 1943. Thanks be to all the digitised family history records now available, we got to vigorously ring our People Identified bell. This photograph marked the wedding of Edward Grace and Ellen Angela Power, who got married on Wednesday, 18 August 1943 in St. John's church, Waterford. Edward Grace was a fitter of 42 Lower Yellow Road. We have no occupation for Ellen Angela Power, but she lived at 108 Ballytruckle, Waterford. The witnesses were William Grace (left of groom) and Josephine Power (right of bride). Photographer: A. H.

The Sugar Loaf?  Hardly!
Description: For those Irish followers and especially those inside the Pale, there is only one Sugar Loaf, and that is beside Dublin Bay in Co. Wicklow. However, down on the Cork/Kerry border they claim to have their own Sugar Loaf! Viewed as this one is from Glengarriff, it is like a jewel in a crown. +++ UPDATE +++ Thanks to beachcomber australia for narrowing the date from a broad 1865-1914, down to early 1890s. This is all based on an entertaining, but fairly scientific, examination of fancy benches, height of fir trees, Library of Congress images, top hats, and poor paint jobs. Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Circa 1865-1914 – see comments, probably early 1890s NLI Ref: L_CAB_01390 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Georgian Decay

Its partners on either side are shored up with timber baulks to save them from the same fate. Whereabouts is it, and what does the street view tell us now?

And the plot thickens...
Description: Mr. Seumas O’Neill of Cashel, German Plot prisoner of Durham Gaol. A fine, handsome young man in semi-military garb with a Nationalist badge on his lapel, locked up in a British gaol. Who was Seumas, and what was the German Plot? What happened to him thereafter? Yesterday’s virtual trip through Germany, Switzerland, and Austria was most entertaining, and a welcome relief from the trials and tribulations of the pandemic, whose name must not be mentioned!
