Castle Gate, Mohill, Co. Leitrim
Description: For those who specialise in Historic buildings or modern transport this shot has everything they'll need! Neddy looks very content outside the castle gates:-) Carol Maddock Informs us of the demise in 1902 of the man of the big house associated with this gate (Mohill Castle). Death of Sir Hugh Crofton, Bart. On Tuesday morning Sir Hugh Denis Crofton, Bart., J.P., died at The Castle, Mohill, from pneumonia, following an attack of typhoid fever. The deceased baronet was only in his 24th year, and was unmarried. He was a graduate and B.A. of Cambridge University. He was recently appointed to the Commission of the Peace for County Leitrim, where he owned a large property. As a landlord, Sir Hugh Crofton was very popular, and much regret is expressed by all classes in the district at his early demise. He is succeeded in the title by his brother, Sir George Morgan Crofton, of the Irish Guards.

Parnell's Grave, Glasnevin, Co. Dublin
Description: A visit to what has now become a tourist attraction, Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin where the "uncrowned King of Ireland" is buried. Charles Stewart Parnell (Irish: Cathal Stiúbhard Pharnell; 27 June 1846 – 6 October 1891) was an Irish landlord, nationalist political leader, land reform agitator, and the founder and leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party.

General View, Tallaght, Co. Dublin
Description: This view of Main Street, Tallaght in South County Dublin has changed dramatically in the meantime. If anyone feels inclined to try out the Parish Registers to find the parents of the child in the picture it is as easy as clicking on the link! An interesting photograph, the group of 4 houses are just being finished, I wonder why they were of interest? the orientation of the front doors on the two outside housed is very strange indeed. Síle C Tells us that The cottages were designed by Thomas Joseph Byrne, Clerk and Architect of South Dublin District Rural Council. See her link below to a South County Dublin Libraries Exhibition on his works.

Alexandria School's
Description: Alexandra Schools on a much-changed Earlsfort Terrace in Dublin... The buildings on the right are Alexandra College which was founded in 1874 at No.6 Earlsfort Terrace. By 1879, a new hall and theater was constructed alongside. Over time, they acquired several more houses and by 1889 a new building by William Kaye-Parry was constructed next door to the college as Alexandra School. In 1972, the school and college relocated to Dartry and the entire site cleared – by this time, it was almost all of one side of Earlsfort Terrace. The site sat empty for some years before being developed as a hotel and office complex. A building by Lanyon, Lynn & Lanyon at No.12 was also demolished at this time. The building on the left was was built by the The Dublin Exhibition Palace and Winter Garden Company for the 1865 exhibition - The heir to the throne, Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, to rapturous enthusiasm, performed the grand opening, on 9 May 1865. In all a huge 930,000 visitors attended the Exhibition between 9 May and 9 November. The Company arranged special railway and other concessions and the Palace was equipped with a telegraph centre, post office branch, railway office, and facilities for a large number of international newspapers. Many thanks to Niall McAuley Inverarra eyelightfilms derangedlemur D.G-S and sharon.corbet for their valued contributions.

Anyone for cricket? Academical College, Coleraine
Description: "School building, 2 storey (3 in central wing) 3 bays deep, 11 wide, professors in foreground boys with cricket bats" Keeping with our academic theme, the "zoomed" view of this stereo-pair (or at least one half of it) has a lot to offer. From the well-dressed professors, to bowler wearing cricket players, to the myriad chaps peering from windows, there's a lot to take in. While the catalogue listing didn't offer us a specific location or date, Dr O Mac came back in double-quick time to establish that this is Academical College in Coleraine - and a firm suggestion that the photo was likely taken within a decade of the college's opening in 1860. (So on the early side of the 1860s to 1880s range) Proposals for a grammar school in the town were first put forward in 1846 and then shelved during the economic crisis which accompanied the Great Irish Famine. Built between 1854 and 1860 – during which time the projected cost of £2000 had exactly doubled – the new school began operation with two masters and fourteen boys. The size of the school peaked at around 1100 boys in the 1970s, and today enrolment stands at slightly below 700.

Mullins, Cashel Co.Tipperary
Description: Between breastfeeding a brush and a dog striking a pose this shot has everything! Cashel, Co. Tipperary. Thanks to Carol Maddock for the following information on Mr William Mullins. William Mullins attended a lot of meetings to do with railways from around 1899, and was at a meeting in Cashel Town Hall to celebrate the efforts of a Rev. Kinane “on the success which attended his efforts to bring to a successful issue his long-cherished idea of procuring a railway for the City of the Kings”. (Irish Examiner, 14 March 1903) He was elected as a member of the Cashel Traders’ Association in October 1906.

Lough Fea House, Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan
Description: We find ourselves in County Monaghan at the Home of the Shirley family at Lough Fea House near Carrickmacross. The house was built in 1827 the following information is from archiseek.com - thanks to sharon.corbet Designed for the Shirley family by the historian Thomas Rickman and which is his only Irish commission, Lough Fea was built in 1827. Lough Fea is unusal in that it resembles an Oxbridge college more than a Victorian castle with its absence of battlements in favour of a solid parapet concealing the roof. Small widely spaced windows give the building a very solid look. The Shirleys and the Rossmores competed for years to build the largest room in the county – with Lord Rossmore extending his Drawing room five times. However Lough Fea lifted the honours with the magnificent Great Hall. With no major towers, Lough Fea seems low and well spaced as it faces onto the lake afterwhich it is named – with the central block flanked by the double height chapel and Great Hall. The chapel is almost a full sized church with pulpit and gallery while the Great Hall has a seven bay minstral gallery over a doorway height dado and two fireplaces and open timber trussed roof.

Regatta Season on the Liffey
Description: I think this is one of the nicest photos we have had for a while, there is so much going on, it is a real shame that we do not have the notes feature as I have no doubt that there would have been at least 20 needed here. We can also see another photographer on the far shore and we know there were (probably) more photos taken on the same day, see the link from sharon.corbet in the comments below. I for one am convinced by DannyM8 arguments around the date on which this photo was taken, surely he must be right? On that basis I have changed the date below and have posted the rarely used "Date Established" tag.

Dunmore East, Waterford
Description: High angle long shot village over small cliffs to beach and bay with many small boats, low hills, in background. beachcomberaustralia had the location of this photo identified in jig time as Dunmore East, Co. Waterford, he should enjoy his day in the sun, as derangedlemur confidently predicted that if he had been here at the time he would have been quicker! If ifs and ands were pots and pans (there'd be no work for tinkers' hands). Beachcomber also tells us that "In about 1812 a decision was made at Westminster to create an entirely new landing point for passengers and mails coming to Ireland from London and southern England. The location selected was Dunmore East and £118,000 was set aside for the erection of a pier there. So in 1814 dramatic changes took place when Alexander Nimmo, the Scottish engineer (builder of Limerick's Sarsfield Bridge) commenced work on the new harbour at Dunmore to accommodate the packet station for ships, which carried the Royal Mail between England and Ireland" Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence Collection: The Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection Date: between ca. 1860-1883 NLI Ref: STP_1880 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Salthill Railway Station and Hotel
Description: Salthill Railway station, people, including girl with pram, Monkstown, Co. Dublin. I am a great admirer of the Stereo Pairs Collection, I think that many photographers today would be very happy to take photographs half as good as some of the specimens we have the pleasure to see on this stream. Today we visit the leafy suburbs of South County Dublin, Salthill Railway Station to be precise, we see the Salthill Hotel in the background and a very modern looking bridge with spiral steps, which I presume is for the use of Hotel patrons. OwenMacC links to a nice photo of the spiral staircase - see below. John Spooner in his inimitable style tells a story of violence and a blood covered gouge, which had been used to inflict near fatal injuries. I have sounded the appropriate Klaxon!!. Do also see his comment on a very destructive storm on 5th January 1877. Thanks to "The Cookie Munster" swordscookie for details on the Station itself. I am very surprised that no one mentioned the signs in the middle of the photo!!!!

Children of Mary.
Description: Group, Children of Mary. : commissioned by Rev. Mother, Convent of Holy Faith, Mullinavat. Today we will see the living rather than the dead, this fine group of young ladies in their regalia from the Poole Collection! "These Children of Mary Sodalities first embraced the pupils and orphans of the schools and institutions of the Sisters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul.....The badge adopted by the Children of Mary Immaculate is the miraculous medal, suspended from a blue ribbon. The Children of Mary organization flourished in the mid 20th century. Young women went through a period of aspirancy of six months prior to acceptance as a fully fledged child of Mary, who had the right to wear the distinctive blue cape and carry the blue cape of a Child of Mary. When a Child of Mary married, she was embraced on arrival on the Church steps by other Children of Mary who removed the blue cape from over her wedding gown." Photographer: A. H.

Main Street, Swords, Co. Dublin
Description: Here we are in Swords the home of Fingal County Council. It would be fantastic if we could tie this photo in some way to the parish registers of the area see - Parish Registers Take a bow young sharon.corbet for finding a link to the Swords parish register, wherein she found the baptism of one Jacobus Savage, on 5th November 1879 son of Michael Savage & Elenora Connor. Sharon also tells us that Jacobus is in the 1901 census as James Savage a car driver. It seems that the Savage family has a long and continuing association with Swords. This photo was selected by "Explore" today, our 38th entry.

Rebuilding Castlebar, Co. Mayo
Description: This shot of Castlebar is in stark contrast to the modern, bustling and thriving town we know today! This is the last of our County towns for this week and perhaps an opportunity to search the Parish Registers Having read the comments below and after taking a long second look at the photograph, I an inclined to side with O Mac argument that this is a scene of renewal rather than a scene of ruin. It seems that the terraced houses in the mid right of the photo are newly built and it looks like there will be more construction at both ends of that terrace. Consequently I have changed the title from "The ruins of Castlebar, Co. Mayo" to "Rebuilding Castlebar Co. Mayo".

Main Street, Naas, Co. Kildare
Description: This morning we bring a particularly bright view of the Main Street in Naas, Co. Kildare! I doubt that any one of us has ever seen this street so clear of traffic:-) Continuing our promotion of the Parish Registers here is a link to the register for Naas! So much talk about traffic ot the lack of it in Naas, I have spent mant hours there in the past. Now with the M7 you pass by without even noticing, this photograph shows what a very nice town Naas actually is. It was the traffic which made me dislike it! sharon.corbet Using the Census and the Parish Registers picked up an 1871 Baptism in the Degnan family, "Emily Cooper and John Degnan had a daughter Emily Mary Anne in 1871. By 1901 she's married to an Albert Carleton and has two children Emily A. and Ellen P. (Who I presume are the Alberta and Patricia Carleton living with their grandparents in 1911. (The registery is pretty illegible, I admit, but I found a transcription elsewhere.)"

Parish Registers for Nenagh, Co. Tipperary
Description: Listed in the catalogue as "Street, Nenagh, Co Tipperary", we selected this image (with others to follow later) to highlight the Parish Registers at NLI launch. We wondered whether anyone in this turn-of-the-century image was listed in the registers for the parish of Nenagh? Were the shopkeeping Hogan or Ryan families baptised locally? Or, after their marriages were recorded in the register, did many newly weds retire to the Railway Hotel for their reception? With thanks to sharon.corbet and guliolopez, we not only confirmed the location and info on the Ryan and Hogan families from the Barrack Street Census, but crucially some likely candidates for the baptism records of Michael Ryan and Michael Hogan from the parish registers of May 1863 and March 1879 Thanks again all!

International Hotel, Bray, Co. Wicklow
Description: An unusual shot today with a Stereo Pair in its full and glorious double to give you twice the pleasure:-) These were remarkable images for the time and the technology available and it is good to show one now and again! While we can strike-through the "possibly" in the catalogue entry itself, it is interesting that the International Hotel is mentioned as the main subject at all (given that it's hardly prominent - being in the distant background...) Anyway, we have confirmation from the community that this is Quinsborough Road, close to the Carlisle Grounds in Bray. The Location Identified klaxon is duly rung. (Now where's my fez....)

Majiculations, Machicolations or Bartizans?
Description: Fortified house (majiculations at Corner) 1 bay deep, adjoining ivy grown building of same height This is Monkstown Castle, Monkstown Co.Cork, the location was identified courtesy of derangedlemur sharon.corbet suggests machicolations rather than majiculations. A machicolation (French, machicoulis) is a floor opening between the supporting corbels of a battlement, through which stones, or other objects, could be dropped on attackers at the base of a defensive wall. In another one of Sharons links (NIAH) they are called, Bartizans - "gabled towers with corner bartizans to each corner" Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence Collection: The Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection Date: Circa 1860-1883 NLI Ref: STP_1608 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Roaring Meg, Derry City, Co. Derry
Description: Thanks to sharon.corbet for the following information on "Roaring Meg". Roaring Meg, named because of its ferocious sound in battle, was used during the Siege of Derry. One account of the famous cannon from the time of the Siege in the Seventeenth Century said: "The noise of its discharge was more terrifying than the contents of the charge to the enemy." The barrel of the cannon bears the inscription 'Fishmongers London 1642,' marking the fact that the cannon was one of 24 cannon sent to the Derry by the City of London and the London Companies after the 1641 siege.

There's a widow, Ellen Dixon/Dickson/Diroon(sic), who works a "laundry" in a house on the Quay with 3 windows, between a house with 3 windows and a house with 6 windows---so this has to be Airmount House as on OSI. She's there washing clothes with her "trainee" servants in 1901 but no sign of her---- or the poor servants in 1911. Photograph therefore pre 1911.

Gothic Grandeur Gloriously Guarded
Description: This beautiful shot from the stereo pairs shows a fine church in an unknown location. The initial title was too long so a wee bit of alliteration to start your day:-) Location Identified as Saint Fin Barre's Cathedral, (Irish: Ardeaglais Naomh Fionnbarra) is a cathedral of the Church of Ireland in Cork city, Ireland. It is in the ecclesiastical province of Dublin. Begun in 1863, the cathedral was the first major work of the Victorian architect William Burges. Previously the cathedral of the Diocese of Cork, it is now one of three cathedrals in the Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross.

Lazy Beds, Newcastle Co.Down
Description: An idyllic Rural/Seaside shot with some fine horticultural practice in the foreground but where is it? Location was identified by our great supporter derangedlemur as Newcastle Co. Down. Is it me or do "lazy beds" remind you of anything else but the great famine? Driving or walking in the west of Ireland you can still see the remains of the beds on the high slopes of hills and mountains. Even in good times the poor people must have been destitute. Thanks to arensee for his "today photo" from the same location, I have linked to it below. Bwana_Samaki Tells us "In seaside locations the lazy beds were made of layers of sand and seaweed, with the windward side of each bed being higher to afford protection to the young plants. This allowed cultivation of otherwise hostile land" Photographers: Frederick Holland Mares, James Simonton Contributor: John Fortune Lawrence Collection: The Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection Date: [between ca. 1865-1883 NLI Ref: STP_1280 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Brick turretted tower
Description: Brick turretted tower, corner - bastion of fort over water, cannon at embrasures Believe it or not, I was surprised when ZMB identified this as Shane's Castle, especially after the photo purporting to be Shane's Castle on Thursday last. You live and learn. By the way, Zoe got within a few minuets, so very well done. Shane's Castle is a ruined castle near Randalstown in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The castle is on the north-east shores of Lough Neagh. Built in 1345 by a member of the O'Neill dynasty, it was originally called Eden-duff-carrick.Shane MacBrien O'Neill changed the name to Shane's Castle in 1722. In more recent times the castle grounds have been used as set locations in Game of Thrones.

Mr. J. Redmond. M.P., Mrs. Redmond and girl
Description: This photo is one of my favourites for quite a while, I have seen quite a few photographs of the great man, but none better than this, in my opinion. We have Mr and Mrs Redmond and the consensus seems to be that the girl (or more appropriately young lady) is Johanna Redmond their daughter. I am going with our suggested catalogue date of 26th January 1914 and there is good evidence that he was in Waterford at that time. John Edward Redmond (1 September 1856 – 6 March 1918) was an Irish nationalist politician, barrister, MP in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party from 1900 to 1918. He was a moderate, constitutional and conciliatory politician who attained the twin dominant objectives of his political life, party unity and finally in September 1914 achieving the promise of Irish Home Rule under an Act which granted an interim form of self-government to Ireland. However, implementation of the Act was suspended by the intervention of World War I, and ultimately made untenable after the Conscription Crisis of 1918. Photographer: A. H.

Vitebsk Governorate Statistical Committee
Description: Vitebsk Governorate Statistical Committee. 28 December 98. The Vitebsk Governorate Statistical Committee was the organ of government statistics in the Vitebsk Governorate for most of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. It was originally opened in 1835, but was reorganized and reopened twice, in 1853 and 1863. It was disestablished in 1918. The first museum in Vitebsk, the Museum of Antiquities, was opened by the Committee. The Committee also published books about statistics and ethnography as well as running publications about on similar topics. This book stamp is from a book looted by the Nazis and sorted by Colonel Seymour Pomrenze, one of “the Monuments Men,” at the Offenbach Archival Depot. There are two scrapbooks of archival markings from the books sorted at the Offenbach Depot in the Seymour Pomrenze Collection held by the American Jewish Historical Society (Call number P-933) There is a finding aid for the collection here The digitized scrapbooks are available here and here.

A summary here would not do justice to all of the comments below, you will have to read them all yourself, I guarantee you will enjoy. Photographer: A. H. Poole Collection: Poole Photographic Studio, Waterford Date: between ca. 1901 and 1954 NLI Ref: P_WP_0294 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Befrielsen av Nord-Norge
Description: Original bildetekst: Søndag den 22. oktober i år rykket russerne over den norske grense i Nord-Norge, og tre dager senere var Kirkenes og store deler av Sør-Varanger befriet. En av de første novemberdager ankom fra Storbritannia en avdeling spesialutdannede norske tropper sammen med en norsk militærkommisjon. Tross tyskernes ordre om tvangsevakuering av sivilbefolkningen sammen med de retirerende styrker, var en stor del av innbyggerne blitt igjen. Bildet viser sivile og soldater på en russisk lastebil i Kirkenes-avsnittet. Arkivreferanse: NTBs krigsarkiv i Riksarkivet (RA/PA-1209/U/Uj/L0214)

Fremme i Kautokeino
Description: Original bildetekst: 17.04. klokka 15.00 var vi fremme. Det var deilig å komme i telt (som var medbragt). Men det viste seg at teltet som stod så lunt og godt, var reist på en elv. Etter 2 dage hadde vi fontene, og så var det bare å pakke sammen og flytte. Dette er like før vi river teltet. Her overnatter vi forresten 10 mann og en kvinne.
