    15 September 1961 was a Friday. A moist Friday. Standard Eight or Ten ?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia Any sign of a Mk2 Morris Minor. ZU 2716? (As that should be O'Dea's car at the time based on the previous research.)

    If you are a sole agent for Irish made Winstanley boots are you an agent for the soles only or for the whole boot?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia It might be a Standard 8 because it has no chrome grille bars but I've seen a picture of a Standard 10 with that single chrome moustache.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/scorbet There are two Morris Minors in the photo beyond the Henkel( Correction Lambretta) scooter. KI reg is from Waterford. The first Minor has a D as a first letter of it registration. But top of second letter is horizontal. Second car could be O'Dea's. The car across the street with ZF Co.Cork reg is a Rover P4. Standard 8 or 10 could be a Deluxe model with its upper chrome bar.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] I was referring to second car along from scooter both are Minors and reg on first one rules it out as O'Dea's but second Minor may be his. RoverP4 was only listed in my comment as identifying it as make and model. I have done an edit on earlier comment as I see how it could be misread.

    I looked for a local weather report for Bandon or Cork, but failed. The nearest I could find was this from the New Ross Standard for 15th September 1961 , which might or might not have applied to Co Cork

    Harvesting Operations—The excellent harvesting weather which prevailed for the past three or four weeks and which enabled farmers to bring harvesting operations well up to schedule broke early in the week and work was brought to a standstill. There was torrential rain on Tuesday, and flooding was reported from some areas.
    The rain on the 15th in Bandon might have been a side effect of Hurricane Debbie

    The "O'Leary" shop is still there and has become "O'Leary and Daughters" Gets a mention by the NIAH, as do several other shops along there. [www.buildingsofireland.ie/buildings-search/building/20844...]

    I see some signs for brands not so long gone: Players Please, my brand Gold Flake Ilford (film) Winstanley (Irish made shoes and boots) HMV Many of the cars would have been Irish assembled, a situation which continued until our joining the EEC.
