Comrades in arms sharing the pain.
Description: “Injured soldier being cared for by the Red Cross on the South Western Front during the Irish Civil War”! A long title for a photograph that tells a tale from 98 years ago somewhere in Munster. The wounded man appears to be in considerable pain and is being held and comforted by his friend and colleague. Two things that stand out for me are the makeshift Red Cross armbands on the two medics, and the old-fashioned kit bag seemingly holding their first aid supplies! Photographer: W. D.

A fine set of fetlocks!
Description: Captain W.J. Baird, Aide de Camp to the Lord Lieutenant sits astride a really fine looking horse in this carefully posed image from the Poole Collection. Now we know the name of the soldier so now we want to know is the name of the horse??? +++ UPDATE +++ Thanks everyone, for confirmation that Captain James Baird was aide-de-camp to Lord Wimborne, Lord Lieutentant in Ireland, and that he was in that post in 1917 (newspaper reports). O Mac suggests Busoni as the horse's name, but we'd need some hard evidence. We're a tough crowd. Oh, and we always love to see John Spooner waxing lyrical about movable boudoirs! Photographer: A. H.

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.

Mary was aged around 40 in this photograph. And speaking of “revealing”, if you read down through the comments, you may be discombobulated by the discussion of knickers.

Description: In 1963, this machine must have appeared like something from another galaxy out there somewhere, when it was deployed on the permanent way. O’Dea’s cataloguing of the demise of the railways in Ireland was also an opportunity to celebrate new ideas and inventions. What did an “8 tool tamper” do for a living? Photographer: James P. O’Dea Collection: O’Dea Photograph Collection Date: Sunday, 7 April 1963 NLI Ref.: ODEA 35/91 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

A country road with a cottage near Camross in Co. Laois by Mr. O’Dea probably means that there is a strip of permanent way not too far off, if that is any help. Photographer: James P.

Blessed among women...
Description: We can understand that you are all exhausted after having to work over the weekend, but we have a personalities shot for you this morning that may re-energise you? (from left) Florrie McCarthy, Joe Clarke, and Eithne Coyle pose outside a window and with a plaque or mural to the side? +++ UPDATE +++ The location defeated us (for now), but not no. 6 Harcourt Street. And Wikipedia provided us with good-ish biogs of Irish republican activists Joe Clarke and Eithne Coyle. Florrie McCarthy remains elusive however, so any information would be welcomed with open arms...
