We have visited Lahinch in County Clare before with photographs showing its golf and aviation connections. This excellent shot from the Lawrence stable of the strand and the Town itself is an ideal one for this forum as there is so much going on both in the foreground and at a distance. It looks like a lovely summers day?

Shortly after we posted this image, BeachcomberAustralia was quick to remind us that we had posted a similar image - 7 looong years ago :) In the comments on that original image, Thomondrow had told us that the Golf Links Hotel (seen on the cliff top here) was built in 1896. Putting this French image at least after that date....


Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914. Likely c.1896-1914

    Interesting comments on this later photo (see rebuilt buildings note), particularly about the Golf Links Hotel, which means we are after 1896. [https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/5456033735/]

    Perhaps doesn't help with dating, but the hillside "chapel of ease" appears to have been built after the OSI 6" survey (1829-41), and before the OSI 25" survey (1897-1913). It was clearly demolished some time since.

    Lahinch or Lehinch, since the 1850s the town was known as Lahinch, some years ago The Placenames Database of Ireland and on Ordnance Survey Maps used Lehinch, some time this year the locals will vote on their preferred spelling.

    "VARIOUS PLEASANT AMUSEMENT FOR ALL" I think it says on the merry-go-round canopy - just like 7 years of the wonderful NLI flickr photostream! Amazing history of carousels - back to the Crusades and earlier - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carousel
