"You may talk about Atlantis, how it's lost beneath the sea
And the grave of the unknown soldier, or the cry of the old banshee
Who was the man in the iron mask, was Jack the Ripper set free
But ask them all "Where's Donegal", it's still a mystery"

    Not the same visit as seen previously, because the houses in Montgomery Terrace have changed colour (or shades of grey) - https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/10588262805/

    We established previously that neighbouring photos are not from the same visit. L_ROY_04315 is pre terrace, so before 1884.

    This could be from the same visit as this one below, thought to be 1905ish based on fashions: Market Square, Moville, Co. Donegal
