The Boys who fought with heart and hand!
Description: The 1798 Memorial in New Ross town commemorates a time of revolt and carnage that took place mainly in that county, and neighbouring Wicklow. A powerful reminder of a popular uprising that allegedly resulted in more casualties than the French revolution 9 years earlier?

Daisy the cow was here!
Description: A nice collection of fresh cowpats on a street in Brookeborough, Co. Fermanagh with a nearby drinking trough the obvious attraction! A memorial to those who lost their lives in the South African war would appear to help with the date, while the nearby Memorial Hall adds some substance to the shot!

Calm waters at last
Description: A rare visit to the Fergus O’Connor Collection, and a lovely scene of a single-arched bridge across a seemingly broad expanse of water. It looks idyllic, and being out on that surface in a single scull would be just heaven! Where is it, and does it still stand?

Leaning on a lamppost in Tralee!
Description: How to confuse a Dublin man? Tell him that Tralee is in Killarney in Co. Kerry! The cataloguer was trying to tell a Kerryman joke while giving the title of this shot as Castle Street, Tralee, Killarney, Co. Kerry! It is a very busy street scene with lots going on.

Rocking around the Clock in Rockingham
Description: Clearly the golfer gave up trying to play his way out of that situation, and brought in the photographer to record the scene so he could shut the naysayers up in the bar in future! The Golf House in Rockingham, Co. Roscommon looks very neat and tidy, apart from the clubs and balls on the floor, but would not accommodate much more than a foursome?

Sailor suit and no shoes
Description: Across the Shannon today to nearby Roscommon, and yet another Castle, but this time Castle Street. A Royal plate gives wonderful detail, with children and adults out and about but no real traffic on the street. A few horse apples are spread out which are very good for the roses!

Donkey day in dear old Skibbereen
Description: Bridge Street in Skibbereen is straight as a die with plenty of young lads, donkeys, and other onlookers in this shot by Mr. French. A fine Royal plate gives us the benefit of lots of detail, but my fading eyesight cannot see a dog anywhere :-) Remember the song? I always loved the final chorus: Oh father dear, the day will come when in answer to the call Each Irishman with feelings stern will answer one and all, I'll be the man to lead the van, beneath our flag of green, And loud and high we'll raise the cry, “Remember Skibbereen!” Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Circa 1865-1914 NLI Ref: L_ROY_07532 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

The castle outside the walls
Description: I’ve never seen this castle so I don’t know if it still stands, but the arrangement of a fortified tower OUTSIDE the walls of a military barracks seems counterproductive? An interesting scene with a sentry at the gate and a gentleman speaking to him, while along the wall on both sides are posters.

The Rocky Waters ford
Description: Having scaled the intellectual heights of Rūmī and George Herbert, Morning Mary felt the need to come back down to earth, and the wonderful Stereo Pairs Photograph Collection is perfect to lift the mood! A rocky ford in a sylvan setting with mountains for a backdrop, has the makings of a wonderful landscape by a skilled artist. As ever, there is no stated location for the STPs, but I am sure those distinctive mountains will be a big help in the identification?

The ruins are not yet ruined...
Description: The Ruins of Tully Church in Kildare don't look too ruined in this Eason image. Perhaps two images were wrongly catalogued? This church looks in good condition, and those standing outside would be in a position to give testimony, but are probably long gone? +++ UPDATE +++ Definitely a bit of rogue cataloguing or “computer says daft thing” going on here. Not ruined. And not Tully Church. We are at least in the right county. This is actually St. Brigid’s RC church in Kildare town. The tower used to have four big statues. “Who pinched the Apostles?” (as the actress said to the bishop) – We can always rely on our beloved beachcomber australia to lower the tone! Thankfully. :) On a more serious note, this church seems to have been rather ill-fated in the statue department, as a statue fell from the new altar inside in 1886, killing Dr. Kavanagh, parish priest.

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Duit  –  Happy Saint Patrick's Day
Description: We would like to wish all our viewers and commentators a very Happy Saint Patrick's Day I am not sure what river this is, but I do know that Saint Patrick's Day is the day when angling opens on any river that has not already opened on the 1st March. Living close to the River Dodder as a child, I remember the anglers would gather on the 16th March as the clock approached midnight and as soon as the hour had passed, they would fish away in an effort to catch the first trout of the season. It must be said that one or two of the anglers were "the worse for wear" having come to the river directly from closing time at the local pub!

The rocky road to nowhere?
Description: The RFA (Royal Field Artillery?) Barracks in Kildare is the feature of this Eason image, though it looks like a drab and unusual terrace of houses. What were these houses? Were they billets for the troops, or married quarters? +++ UPDATE +++ These were Married Quarters for the Royal Field Artillery in the barracks in Kildare, that went on to be called Magee Barracks from 1938. The odd curvy roof features have survived on some of the houses on what is now Magee Terrace in Kildare Town. John Spooner unearthed some frankly terrifying articles about ‘clean, cosy, and compact’ married quarters, from a woman’s perspective – this one from February 1900...

Going for a pint?
Description: After all the looking up yesterday and the struggle to even put the right numbers on houses we felt that everybody needed a wee bit of refreshment, and so a visit to St. James’s Gate and the Guinness Brewery was called for. For that reason, we can now look down and see the entire area surrounding the Brewery with areas north and south of the Liffey as a bonus!

Chief Secretary's Lodge now Deerfield, Phoenix Park, Dublin.
Description: Another day in the Phoenix Park is always welcome, especially for any of us living more than 5 Km from there in this time of "lock down". I think I know some of the history of this house, but I am very happy to wait and read the facts you discover before I comment. I have used this strategy before and it has served me well, in that most times what I thought I knew was in fact incorrect. We live and learn! Over to you. +++ UPDATE +++ Really enjoyable stream of comments below that I would encourage you to read – arguments about official buildings in the Phoenix Park, diplomatic relations (FURIOUS Irish Bishops!), missing conservatories, windows that don't match.

The job is OXO!
Description: I know, I know! Your deja vus are having a bad case of deja vu, but this photograph of Harcourt Street Station was too good to pass. There is so much to see here, the station itself, the luggage trolleys, the fashion, and the advertising hoardings. The messenger boy’s bicycle parked at the footpath is a real reminder of days gone by, and cheeky devils flying about the streets with their loads for delivery! +++ UPDATE +++ Gorgeous posters in this one! And very helpful they were too. Dates for the fillum Monte Carlo (“As Intimate as a Lady’s Boudoir”, if you don't mind!) in the Irish Times and an excursion to Tramore gave us a really close date of in or around early August 1931.

Business as usual during minor alterations

Bare feet and brown boots in Limavady

Shuttered shop on the corner of Alexander Street
Description: All these celebrations, and the sherry provided by the Library Hierarchy have given me a hangover, so back to the sobriety of the Poole Collection for today's image. House in Alexander Street commissioned by W. McCoy shows us a fine establishment with lots of potential, and two resident corner boys. What am I offered? +++ UPDATE +++ Well done to you all on reconstructing the lives and livelihoods of those families living and working around Alexander Street.

FLYING HIGH IN CELEBRATION – 90 MILLION VIEWS
Description: Today we are celebrating having reached 90,000,000 views, and to mark the occasion we have been given access to the aerial photography of Alexander “Monkey” Morgan. So for today what could be better than to have a parade, a St. Patrick’s Day Parade to be sure, but with a wonderful view of Dublin’s city centre from high in the sky. Which is where Monkey Morgan was of course! As we post his images in the future, it is going to pose its own challenges seeing places from a very different PoV!!!! +++ UPDATE +++ I think it's safe to say that we're going to very much enjoy the lofty point of view that Monkey Morgan’s photos will give us. We've established the exact date for this one – Thursday, 17 March 1955, and also that the parade started from St. Stephen’s Green at 11am. It went up one side of O'Connell Street, and then back down the other, which certainly seems to give better value to spectators than modern parades. You couldn't miss a thing that way. And 'twas far from a St. Patrick's Festival the parade was in those days. It was sombrely called the Industries Parade, and was organised by the National Agricultural and Industrial Development Association. We found out there were about 250,000 spectators on this day, and thanks to Sharon Corbet, we know there was “a bit of an incident”!

Description: A wonderful Eason image for today with High Street, Belfast in all its glory. Trams, carriages, sidecars, pedestrians, all on a long, busy High Street with awnings out to protect the windows from the sun.

Lucan, the most exotic place for taking the waters!
Description: Growing up and reading that members of the nobility would travel to far off places to “Take the waters”, it seemed that it was unlikely that we would have something similar close by. Lisdoonvarna in the midst of the wonderful Burren seemed to be an aberration, but due to the nature of the place it seemed understandable. Lucan on the other hand, on the outskirts of Dublin City, might not have been seen in the same light, but here is proof positive that indeed there was a Spa in Lucan.

Description: The Manor of St. John has that classic sound to it! A place built on the site of a monastery perhaps, or is that the name of the townland?

Baby beneath the thatch
Description: If I had been told that this was an image from one of the far flung colonies of the British Empire, rather than Glena Cottage in Killarney, that would have been credible!

Patiently waiting for the fall?
Description: A fine Royal Plate from the Lawrence Collection featuring a geological oddity near Kenmare in Co. Kerry. “Green Stone on Lime” is the title which probably means that it is an erratic dating from the last ice age? Is it still there intact, or has the pollution and the increased movement of people toppled what thousands of years could not do? +++ UPDATE +++ It is still outstanding in its field! And well done, that derangedlemur and that beachcomber australia, for finding this scientific description of our mighty stone wonder in The Irish Naturalist, September 1898, which would have been published around the time this photo was taken: “Carrigacappeen, a very remarkable erratic of Old Red grit, standing on a 6-foot pillar of Carboniferous Limestone, a striking example of denudation by solution since the Glacial Epoch”.

A jewel in the crown
Description: It has been a long time since we had an image from the Wiltshire Collection, so an early morning view of Iveagh House seems like a great way to redress that loss! This is one of Morning Mary’s favourite buildings in Dublin and the interior is even better than it’s splendid exterior! +++ UPDATE +++ We had a fabulously ghosty story from Bernard Healy about Holy Thursdays in Dublin, and the widespread belief that a cross appeared in one of the windows of Iveagh House – so widespread that crowds used to gather outside in the hopes of seeing the cross. An article in the Evening Herald newspaper from June 1976 confirmed this long-held Dublin belief. Sadly, it seems it was just a great story, and nothing but “a natural flaw in the original glass caused the vision of the cross”. And do read beachcomber australia's story from Trove for a flaming example of a scathing Edwardian burn against Lord Iveagh and his decorating notions...

The Monastery, Kildare
Description: I love the statue in the skylight over the door in this Eason photo of The Monastery in County Kildare. For some reason I think this building is small for a "Monastery" I would have expected something larger and more ecclesiastical. I am interested to see what we learn from your investigations.

Safe harbour in Roundstone.
Description: We will begin this week with an image of Roundstone in Co. Galway, with crops in the fields and telephone/graph wires draped across the landscape. The children are out and about which probably means that the schools are on holiday, while there are few boats in the harbour, meaning that the fishing boats are out?

Margaret was no Square!
Description: As we prepare for the weekend, we will relax a little with a known location for a change! Margaret Square in Newry with horses, and not donkeys in the shafts, together with cyclists rolling on the American side of the street! It will be interesting to see what we can find out about the shot? Photographer: Robert French Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection Date: Circa 18651895-1914 (Thanks John Spooner!)

We came across a cross.
Description: While searching the archive, I came across this photograph of a cross in stereo, and I immediately said to myself, they will never find the location! The catalogue description is equally nondescript. It says “Small rude stone cross of 1 piece” which must be one of the vaguest descriptions in the whole catalogue. Excellent, I thought, this is as tough as it gets. Good luck with the detective work!

Rocky beauties
Description: To end a bizarre week, we have this charming image captured during a visit by the Clonbrocks to the Aran Islands. The stub of an ancient cross, set among the rocky fields, and emphasising its age, there are two young locals – a lad and a lassie. What can we find out about it, and when was it taken? +++ UPDATE +++ Well, the best thing we found out about this photograph is that we need to horizontally flip it in our catalogue. The second-best thing is that it was taken before “the twenty-one cottages were built in 1914”. (Thank you, Mike, you're always great for the island information.)

The Bailey of the Alps?
Description: At fist glance, this image of the Bailey Light at Howth looks as if it is surrounded by vast mountains and rocky slopes. Instead it appears that a very poor effort at old style photo shopping has taken place or that the plate – a fine Royal sized plate has deteriorated dramatically. What a pity, as the Bailey is seen in splendid detail here!

An ecclesiastical complex among the tussocks
Description: The title sums this one up! An ecclesiastical complex in the midst of tussocks of grass. Where, when, and what is it like now? I suspect that this is one that will be joining the “No longer standing” category? +++ UPDATE +++ Thanks to Sharon Corbet's prodigious memory, it turns out that we've visited this location before. It's the Hevey Institute in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. But sure lookit, while it might have been less craic for all of you, it means that another one of our photographs is now Location Identifed rather than languishing in our catalogue as “Institutional building, nine bays wide, (three under pediment of central element) with central tower”. So that can't be bad...

Water under the bridge
Description: Dutchy and Jim captured a beauty here with lovely creamy water and a fine three arched bridge somewhere in Ireland! The scene is rugged, rustic and rural with some effort to divert the water just evident at the bottom of the shot. I wonder what it looks like today and does the beautiful bridge still stand?

Lying about on the lines.
Description: And its then I'll repair to the Curragh of Kildare as the song goes and obviously these men have taken that literally. "F" Lines in the Curragh Camp shows lots of wooden walled buildings, some strange fencing around two cannon and several layabouts.

Mr. Mosley and staff at your service!
Description: Since we are on a run of buildings here is a shop, apparently in Waterford with the staff standing ready to serve! Mr. Mosley had a fine shop with plenty of frontage and even some sideage but where is/was it and and what did they do for a living? Morning Mary was having some issues with WiFi earlier and though I did all this work already obviously it got lost out there in the ether.

Simpler days
Description: I know that across the country, wedding ceremonies are being cancelled or heavily curtailed, because of this terrible virus. It must be causing great anguish to all involved. Today, we travel back to simpler times and present a very happy looking couple, I presume on the day of their wedding. I wonder who the other two people are? Siblings? Best man and bridesmaid? I am sure we will know before the morning is out. The photograph was commissioned by Mr. Thomas Hogan of 1 Doyle Street, Waterford.

Mount Jerome Cemetery
Description: Sometimes I think it is a little bit ghoulish but I find visiting cemeteries quite fascinating! Seeing the details of those residents/citizens who have passed on to their eternal reward can give you such an insight to the place and the people that often you cannot obtain from the buildings! Mount Jerome is out there on the south side so I am not too familiar with it, and will watch with interest to see what develops!

The church looks to be attached to a religious establishment, yet is open to the general public and the people attending have dressed up for the occasion. Sunday’s Well has always intrigued me!

Description: The National Library of Ireland is reopening TODAY and Miss Mary O'Leary is ready for business! This fine Clarke image taken just outside the front door of the Library is as good a way of reminding people that we are open once again after the lockdown. What is even more exciting is that this is just one of two photos we will be putting up today as this is intended to advertise the opening. Nonetheless any information on the image would be very much appreciated? If any of you are thinking of following Miss O'Leary's example and visiting us, please see this information you need.

Where they stole Trevelyan’s corn...
Description: Since I was very young, Athenry has been a name that resonates with me. Travelling in the old steam trains to Sligo, the call “All change at Athenry” would ring out, and the name had that special appeal. I was tempted to give it the title “Low lie the fields” but that was just a bit too obvious, and as there is a Peeler in the shot, I thought a bit of crime and punishment might be more appropriate!

Adding a bit of colour
Description: Whoever put this shot in the catalogue must have been a townie! It is titled “Pony and trap, Ring of Kerry, Ireland” and this is no pony and trap, but a working cart and horse. We haven’t had the pleasure of visiting with Mr. Tilbrook for quite some time, but as ever he brings a keen eye and a touch of colour to the proceedings. They say that you should be careful what you wish for and when I put up the title on yesterday’s shot, I didn’t consider the after effects. I had an ear worm for the rest of the day and nana nah nah nanana nah is going around in my head ever since. :-( +++ UPDATE +++ Star of this show is Mike Grimes, who pinpointed the location of this photograph with uncanny accuracy! So not the Ring of Kerry as we thought, but rather the Skellig Ring. Thanks very much, Mike. Another location identified...

I wonder was he thinking of buying it? Photographer: James P. O'Dea Collection:James P.

Mr. Gray composing his elegy?
Description: On this Good Friday, when church services have been curtailed/prohibited due to the pandemic, it seems appropriate that we go to church? This lovely photograph of the “Old Cathedral” at Leighlin in County Carlow shows a church that looks like it was built in stages. The gentleman loitering on the tombstone looks like a poet in contemplative mood, and so inspired the title above.

Fascinating Fastnet’s fearless construction workers.
Description: One of Ireland’s most challenging and successful engineering projects, carried out in extremely difficult and hazardous conditions. The Fastnet Lighthouse is iconic for mariners who pass through the waters off the south coast of Ireland, and the subject of many fine photographs. It gives Morning Mary the willies even looking at those men on the structure! +++ UPDATE +++ A really striking photograph that would stop most of us from moaning about our working environments! Great to identify one of these men – master stonemason James Kavanagh is in the white coat with his back to the camera. According to many sources, Mr Kavanagh “placed every stone of the lighthouse with his bare hands”. Unfortunately, he died before the Fastnet light came into use. Photographers: Robert S.

Waiting for Godot?
Description: It is many years since Morning Mary was in Ballina and even longer since she was in Ardnaree but this sight, apart from the people, is very familiar. On the “wrong” side of the river from the bulk of the town, it was the site of a famous boxing club, but close to many of the attractions of Ballina of that time!

Description: This bank building in Ballyshannon reminds me more of the famous "Hatters Castle" in AJ Cronin's novel of the same name than any other bank I have ever seen.

Old stones and high grass in Dingle
Description: This Lawrence image of Kilmalkader in Dingle is one of a number taken by the indomitable Mr. French on a trip to the Kingdom.
