(from left) Florrie McCarthy, Joe Clarke, and Eithne Coyle pose outside a window and with a plaque or mural to the side? +++ UPDATE +++ The location defeated us (for now), but not no. 6 Harcourt Street. And Wikipedia provided us with good-ish biogs of Irish republican activists Joe Clarke and Eithne Coyle. Florrie McCarthy remains elusive however, so any information would be welcomed with open arms...

The title on the image is “Unidentified man holding copy of “Ulysses”, others in background, Michael Scott’s house, Sandycove, Co.

RMS Mauretania, merchant ship, ca.1915
Description: RMS Mauretania was an ocean liner designed by Leonard Peskett for the British Cunard Line. She made her maiden voyage on 16 November 1907 and was the world's largest ship until the completion of RMS Olympic in 1911. In 1915 she was ordered by the British government to serve as a troop ship to carry British soldiers during the Gallipoli Campaign. This photo is from around that period and shows her painted in wartime 'Dazzle Camouflage.'

Dog poses with humans in Lismore while spaniel goes shy  :-)
Description: Continuing the practice of posting on Bank Holidays, we have this lovely, happy, and varied group from the Poole Collection. At least three generations of a family gathered with lots of smiles and happy faces, and all centred around a fine looking dog! Today in Ireland is a Bank Holiday celebrating May Day (just a bit late), and normally a great time for trips away, but not this year. Hopefully we will be out and about again soon? Photographer: A.

Lean, mean and bowler hatted
Description: This fine group of sportsmen taken by Mr. Poole is a bit of a puzzle. If they were oarsmen, there would surely be an oar or two on display. Fooballers would have a ball or two to play with. Hurlers would have hurleys, but these lads have what looks like a telescope? Who were they? What was their sport, and what are those devices the two in the front rank are holding? +++ UPDATE +++ Well, safe to say that everybody had a good time yesterday with this one! The spikes on the shoes certainly prove running/athletics. But were these chaps fire brigade men? Are those implements fire hose nozzles? Can't see this one being left to lie fallow, so bated breath here at Library Towers for a definite solution! Photographer: A. H.

I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls
Description: This is allegedly a bust of Denis Florence MacCarthy. Now I suspect that many of us plebs never heard of this gentleman, so one wonders who was he to be preserved for all time in marble? It is a fine-looking sculpture with excellent detail, so this is a particularly singular honour for Denis. Google search on the way!!!! +++ UPDATE +++ No idea why our catalogue record had a question mark after Bust of Denis Florence MacCarthy? as it quite clearly states what it is on the tin, or in this case, marble plinth. Thanks to Suck Diesel for the list of the great and good of Irish society in 1882, who came together to contribute to a memorial fund to perpetuate “in a fitting manner the memory of this distinguished Irish poet”. We’re assuming this bust was the outcome of that fund? And we now know that Mr MacCarthy (1817-1882) was an Irish poet, translator, and biographer, born in Sackville Street Lower (now O’Connell Street), Dublin.

John Tyndall, half-length portrait, facing front
Description: This image of John Tyndall has so much information contained within regarding sartorial, tonsorial and “barborial”, all denoting the fashions of a time! Who was John Tyndall? Did he write songs as well, or was he a wielder of the sword rather than the pen? +++ UPDATE +++ Turns out he was more of a wielder of the mind, rather than sword or pen. There was some initial argument as to whether this was, in fact, John Tyndall – based on hair parting, facial features, facial hair, apparent age in various portraits, and the name J. Glastrich on the carte-de-visite itself. However, the consensus is that this is indeed physicist John Tyndall, professor of physics at London’s Royal Institution from 1853 to 1887. He was a very interesting fellow. Domhnall Sioradáin provided us with a succinct biography: Tyndall, from Leighlinbridge, Carlow, is remembered in Cork, in the Tyndall National Institute. He left Carlow at 18 to work for the Ordnance Survey around Munster, before moving to Preston. He is noted for his explanation of why the sky is blue (Rayleigh scattering), heat absorption by CO2 in the atmosphere, and the measurement of aerosols by scattering (Tyndall effect).

Bunlin Bridge, Co. Donegal
Description: We had another personality lined up for today, but since yesterday’s post I have The Rising of the Moon playing live in my head, so we’re off to Donegal! Bunlin Bridge somewhere in that beautiful county looks like quite a feat to create the causeway and build the bridge. Is it still as picturesque today? +++ UPDATE +++ A big thank you to all of our usual suspects for finding out, and more importantly, for telling us that the cottage, the mill wheel, and the humpback bridge are sadly, long gone. The cottage was Widow Algoe’s, and Tuck Mill was a flax mill. They unearthed references to Molly Maguire activity in the area, and open-air masses in the late 1860s. In 1876, the widowed Mrs Algoe was evicted with her six children from the cottage for allegedly cutting some trees, “contrary to the order of” her landlord. She retook possession of her cottage in 1878, perhaps thinking that the assassination of her landlord, Lord Leitrim, might save her. However, the estate's agents evicted her again. And our resident newspaperman, John Spooner discovered that in August 1939, the Londonderry Sentinel newspaper considered it newsworthy that a pair of swans chose this inlet to nest and rear their young – must have been a very slow news month.

John Keegan “Leo” Casey
Description: John Keegan Casey, or as the police would say, John Keegan alias Leo Casey, in a very old and faded photograph for today’s image. A big change from the wide and crowded street of Kingscourt to the clouded and tragic world of the Fenian Brotherhood. What can we find out about John, and what happened to him? +++ UPDATE +++ Thank you to everyone for the great information contributed about John Keegan Casey, who we found out was a poet, a teacher, a scholar, and a Fenian. BeachcomberAustralia found a great article in the Irish Times although he says it’s "hopefully reliable”. How very dare you? That’s the ‘paper of record’ you’re casting asparagus at! :)) Anyway, among many gems in that article by Denis Fahey was this interesting little nugget: “His coffin was draped in silk banners of green white and orange, the first recorded use of a tricolour for this purpose, and thousands of people marched in a procession from his home to Glasnevin Cemetery.” Photographers: Various Collection: Irish Political Figures Photographic Collection Date: ca. 1850-1870 NLI Ref: NPA PERS3 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

And the truth shall set us free...
Description: One of Ireland's greatest heroes and statesmen who has streets and monuments named after him all over the country is now almost a forgotten man! Daniel O'Connell was a powerful figure in the 19th century who did not believe in the use of force but who put the fear of God into his opponents at that time.

Description: In 1872 Miss Amy Sheridan's performance of Lady Godiva by W. M. Akhurst for Astley's circus created a furor among the respectable society when she appeared as Lady Godiva dressed in what for the time was deemed virtually nothing.

Caging the tiger
Description: Is this the forerunner of the 40 foot container that is so ubiquitous today? This giant cage protecting the new item of equipment for the “GPE” factory in Donegal must have been quite the marvel in 1979. Taken when industries were opening in rural Ireland, whereas they all appear to be closing down today, sadly!

Lennox Robinson bids you all a Happy New Year
Description: A name I have heard many times in the course of my life and yet I could tell you little about him. Lennox Robinson looking rather dapper with a fine wool overcoat, suit and dicky bow tie! We are back though many of those who normally visit us here will not be back just yet! For all of you may we wish you a Peaceful, Happy and safe New Year and especially for our friends in Australia. We watch in horror at the fires and you are all in our thoughts and prayers! UPDATE: Thanks especially to suckindeesel for giving us Tim Pat Coogan’s lovely description of this “tall, thin, tweedy man”... “When I knew him, he lived in a flat, large and comfortable, but still only a flat ... at Longford Terrace, Monkstown. ... One of the great sights of Monkstown in those years was Lennox, a tall, thin, tweedy man with a distant expression, being led by a very tiny Sealyham dog, at the end of a very long lead, on his peregrinations to and from Goggins pub, the very epitome of the Irish expression ‘the relics of auld decency’.” Photographers: Various Collection: Irish Personalities Photographic Collection Date: Circa 1920-1958 NLI Ref: NPA PERS71 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at catalogue.nli.ie

Crushing and grinding
Description: I suspect that there are many of us these recent days whose teeth are crushing and grinding at the constant blaring of so called Christmas songs in public places. This Eason image shows a crusher and grinder from Dawson's, Maynooth, Co. Kildare, which could save our teeth and the stress if we each had one to carry around with us!
