Morning Mary has a special affection for this image as this is where she learned to swim. A popular place for picnicking close to the town of Ballina and no doubt a lively salmon river as well. When she was there it was not nearly as lively as it is in this shot as it was high summer and the waters were low.

Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: Circa 1865 - 1914

NLI Ref: L_ROY_05536

    Just by way of information https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/52460208925/in/photostream/ "A Gallant and Four Gallans" has been added to the 50,000+ views album and is currently north of that number. What is really interesting is that this image was not explored which is where most of our images pick up big numbers.

    Streetview ?? - goo.gl/maps/597QwhWxWrnmk6y48 Cautious, because I can't see that building behind the lad on the old maps. Reverse-ish view showing Downhill House ( I would change the name if I lived there!) - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000320164

    Far from me question the morning people from Mayo but is not the this river called the River Brosna on Google Maps? A tributary of the River Moy which it is shortly to join a little downstream. We seem to be looking upstream, which is generally south. The recent streetview seems to show a brick construction with steps and mayhap a salmon weir by-pass or perhaps I'm imagining/misinterpreting things (not unusual). I've got it mentally noted for a possible photo should I be in South Sligo and doing a tour toward Achill/Blacksod/Maam Cross.

    Nearby in the catalogue is a bridge and cathedral in Ballina in L_ROY_05533. There I see an RIC man in a forage cap, meaning 1900+.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ I think the correct spelling is Brusna not the Brosna which flows into the Shannon at Shannon Harbour. Also called Bunree River after the townland.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] : Hmmm .... I think www.google.co.uk/maps/@54.1174889,-9.137961,20z Google Maps says "River Brosna". I'll need to check elsewhere, especially the way I've done the caption here: commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:Sweet_Bunree... Another Etymology issue near the N59! 😭

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Well: Paul Swift in Ireland's Own agrees with you. See www.irelandsown.ie/tributaries-of-the-river-moy/#:~:text=.... Perhaps the little people have been at Google Maps? I haven't seen a Ireland's Own in ages but my late Grandmother used to get it all the time when I was young. What at excellent opportunity for some Wikidata references and an attempt opportunity to change the name on Google Maps! Given my last attempt to get the incorrect labelling of Slipper Mill Pond at Emsworth Hampshire failed I don't give hope to change the name on the maps there. Might be better to simple contact MidWest Radio to make a good story!😄

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Anyway only the Inagh River is showing as a tributary of the Moy at the time I'm posting this ... www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q1149711&oldid=161... ( And I'm thinking having www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q15734015 a tributary of Q1149711 is a problem ... I feel like I'm floundering in a Mayo Bog without operation Goole maps to get me to civilisation. ) ...😭 The claim that River Inagh is a tributary of the Moy was made at Wikidata here: www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q1149711&type=revi...

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ Yes, Ireland’s Own is still published. The Brusna spelling is used on all the OSI maps, both old and new. I don’t think Wiki lists a Brusna on their list of Irish rivers.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] OK. My journey on the Moy tributaries is getting weirder and wackier by by the hour. Their is an existing Wikidata item relating to the Brusna River, the current version is at www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Q32539158&oldid=12... . This also indicates there is a related article on the Cebuano language Wikipedia at ceb.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brusna_River but it is not listed as a Moy Tributary. I see no evidence of a matching article on the English Wikipedia having been deleted so this all seems weird (perhaps an editathon in the Philippines??). Doing semi random googling and document inspections I see several "official" type documents referring to "Brusna" and sites I'd generally expect to probably be accurate most of the time to use "Brosna". (www.iww.ie/river_guide/map/index.php?id=356). I am indef blocked and censored on the English Wikpiedia for Competency is Required so I cannot fix anything in that place. (Wikidata/commons/simple/Gaelic/wikiquote ok though). Anyway I need to watch IACGMOOH for JVT/MH/GC and decopedia and the upcoming GC enwiki eviction counteractions. (Don't ask).😮

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/] The Brusna does get a few passing mentions in Wiki en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilbeggan_Distillery en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanaghy No sign of the Bunree River, however.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Kilbeggan_Distillery is on the Brosna that flows into the Shannon - not the Brusna, the Shanaghy townland article is poorly sourced and I suspect probable for deletion/merge - hopefully the associated Wikidata item www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q3775948 will survive. I've accept my #FreeLUAS picture injection was "naughty" - albeit there were complex reasons - and the effects of that are still to be seen on the Japanese Wikipedia ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%AB%E3%82%A2%E3%82%B9 (following discussions it actually hard to get taken down). I'd be more concerned about a possible upcoming Bray Daly battle for the mosaics let alone the old murals. The ultimate reason for my indef block was for use of a word that Charlotte Stoker used in her description of the Sligo 1832 Cholera epidemic. Back to the point here though I might try to do/sort some stuff on the Wikidata & the Cebuano Wiki & get a category set up on commons but I'll give the Morning Mary a chance to cross the Liffey and explore the (not so sweet?) Bradogue river first ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bradogue_River ).

    I've created wikipedia commons (pictures) category for the Brusna River and collected a few existing images to that category, per commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Brusna_River . I'll add an infobox to that at a later point to bring in info from Wikidata. I've taken an archive at archive.ph/Ei524 evidencing Google Maps currently claims the river is called the 'River Brosna'. I note the Gaelic Wikipedia article for the River Moy ga.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Mhuaidh notes in its infobox the Inagh River river as a tributary but then links it to the river in County Clare which flows direct to the Atlantic! (It's getting that info from Wikidata and that will automatically if Wikidata is fixed).
