Well now, I haven't had the pleasure of posting an Eblana image for quite some time and this one is as sharp as a tack! The Park in Dungarvan is dominated in the background by a church and contained a bandstand as one of it's central features. It would be interesting to see how much has survived and what it looks like today?

    The Dungarven 1798 memorial is dated 1898, suggesting the photo is later than 1898 www.buildingsofireland.ie/buildings-search/building/22821...

    As usual, Mr French / Lawrence revisited several times - Not the exact same plate as here but same tripod, no lanterns and bare trees - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000331274 Similar angle but with gas lanterns in the bandstand, and leaves on the trees - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000318989 From a different angle, with lanterns - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000042246 Same angle as above, with lanterns but NO MEMORIAL. Which implies the bandstand (and lanterns) preceded the 1898 Memorial. - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000333202 Today's photo seems to be the latest, unless the bandstand gas lanterns were taken down during the winter. Or not?

    Bandstand details - looks like it was built in 1897 - "... Spire - gold; Roof - light green; Floating - white; Columns - bronze; Railings - light green; Cantilever - white. McFarlanes also supplied glass lanterns for the band stand. In the 1920s or 1930s the cast iron railings connecting the pillars were removed and replaced by single ugly looking bars and at the same time the floor space was extended. These bars have been replaced in recent years by the U.D.C. with modern railings which do not blend with the old iron work. ... See - www.waterfordmuseum.ie/exhibit/web/Display/article/341/2/...

    The church tower is c.1900 per the NIAH. The 1904 OSI 25" shows the bandstand and tower, but not the memorial.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] I believe this is a copy from the very same plate as L_CAB_08587: I see the same thumbprint just left of the bench in the foreground.

    The building to the right of the church tower is the Church of Ireland primary school (now a private house).
