In early September last an American phtographer and his family stopped off in Paddy Fahey’s Ladyswell St to get something to eat. Kevin Horan, from Langley, Virginia a former staff photographer with the Chicago Sun Newspaper had with him a print taken on his previous visit to the town in 1978.
He inquired as to the names and well being of the men as a copy of the photograph hangs in his home and as it was a grabbed shot he didn’t know the mens’ names. A few phone calls provided the answers. All are now deceased L/R. Mikey Keane, Cathal Brugha St Billy O’Dwyer, Upper Friar St Edgar Morrissey, Abbeyside Jack Morrissey, Upper Friar St Johnny Flynn, Dominic St. The men are sitting on a bench salvaged from the old town hall, the photo was taken at Quigley’s Corner Agars Lane.
